Thank you ITD for creating this project that gave me the opportunity to get out of my comfort zone, [to] get on my first plane, and to form so many incredibly strong bonds that I know will last a lifetime.
Norway Youth Leadership participant

Between July 6 and July 31, 2019, ITD will be hosting its Study of the U.S. Insitute for Student Leaders from the Western Hemisphere. 20 students from El Salvador, Guatemala, Honduras and Mexico will spend five weeks learning about Public Policymaking, leadership skills, community service, and overall U.S. history. As part of their program, ITD recruits student mentors from nearby universities to help the SUSI students learn more about being a student in the U.S. and draw a comparison to their student experience in their home countries. 
Student mentors should spend about ten hours a week with the international students for the duration of the program, mostly during the evenings. To be a student mentor for this program you need to speak Spanish at least at conversational level. 
If you are interested in being a student mentor, or have any questions regarding this position, please email Alejandro Alfaro at
