BUAP offers training courses for people from Puebla living in New York

Despite the contributions they make to the American economy, Mexican migrants still face high levels of social exclusion and poverty. To overcome this situation, BUAP launched for the first time the program “Poblanos abroad,” where different courses are offered to people from Puebla who live in New York with the conviction that education can have a positive impact on their quality of life.

“Poblanos Abroad” seeks to promote the continuous training of migrants, especially Puebla people living in New York. Individual calls offer 13 online courses—nine free and four at low cost—where useful training knowledge will be provided that will contribute to improving their conditions, explained José Marún Ibarra Doger, coordinator of the School of Teacher Training and Academic Development (EFDDA).

In this first stage, the formation of this educational offer is based on research and approach, which BUAP continues with the association Migrant Force, as well as other organizations such as the National Migration Institute, Casa Puebla, and the Consulate in New York.

“These courses will be opened quarterly. The second stage is scheduled for April, with a new offer to be structured to connect with this community to know their needs and thus target this training,” said Marún Ibarra.

The official insisted that this program is specifically designed for people from Puebla who live in New York, but it is also open to those who live in other states of the country; therefore, he requested that the general public be sensitive so that these spaces are occupied by this sector.

He stressed that BUAP will maintain strict control over the data management and privacy given to migrant applicants, so he assures them that they have full confidence that their information will not be used for any purpose other than the enforcement of school control.

Among the themes that will be discussed in the 13 courses are: how to create work teams; financial management and prevention of bank or telephone fraud; aggressive negotiation and sales; introduction to artificial intelligence; non-toxic masculinities; and basic level computing, among others.
