The Guidelines for the implementation of the Program “Youths building the Future” were issued recently in the Mexican Federal Official Gazette.

Andrés Manuel López Obrador, the current President of Mexico, included in his campaign proposals the program called « Youths building the Future», in order to allow Mexican youths the chance to go to university, avoid being unemployed and avoid antisocial acts. Moreover, the program aims to increase the development of productive activities and ensure further economic growth.

The Program includes the following grants: educational grant of $2,400 pesos per month for higher education to youths between 18 and 29 years, who have completed high school and wish to earn a university degree; or a monthly grand of $3,600 pesos for one year. This grant shall be awarded through the implementation of a job-training program. The aim is to enable an estimate of 2.3 millions of youth to «work» and be qualified for a company or work center in the public, private or social sectors.

Overall, the Mexican Ministry of Labor and Social Welfare will be in charge of directly awarding the grants to the interns. Also, the Ministry shall ensure the coverage against accidents and illnesses of the Interns participating in Program during the training period.
