The International Leadership of Texas fosters a community of support, friendship, and caring. One of the ways that we do this is through our Mentor Program. The Mentor Program pairs a local student with an international student so that they have a friend to study with, learn American culture from, and share experiences with. Mentors maintain close, friendly contact with the international students, making them feel comfortable while gaining an understanding of their many new experiences at the International Leadership of Texas.
Mentor relationships are rooted in events that allow for the international students to experience American culture with their mentors. Some mentor events include NBA basketball games, amusement parks, and bowling.
Twice a month, the Mentor Program provides opportunities for international students and their American peers to connect and learn from one another. Students can participate in various events, such as NBA basketball games, camping, canoeing, and amusement parks.
