«Jeunes Ambassadeurs» Program: 11 iaelyon students join the 2018 edition.

Evènement | November 8, 2017

Amongst the 22 University Jean Moulin students who were admitted to the “Jeunes Ambassadeurs” Program, 11 students are from iaelyon.

The “Jeunes Ambassadeurs” Program created in 1999 at the Lyon Chamber of Commerce and Industry now aims at contributing to the international outreach of the Auvergne-Rhône-Alpes region through the mentoring of a foreign student by a business leader. 

Today the organization has four offices and one new location: Lyon (1999), St-Etienne (2003), Grenoble (2011), Chambéry (2015) and Clermont-Ferrand (2016).

70 international students for the 2018 edition

70 students in total have been selected for the new edition and “Young ambassador/Business leader” teams were formed on Tuesday, October 24th at the MATMUT STADIUM (Lyon 7)

For the new edition, 22 international students enrolled at University Jean Moulin will join the program.

The strong representation of iaelyon students must be underlined since 11 students from our School will join the program. As for the other students: 4 are from the Law Faculty, 4 from the Foreign Languages Faculty, 2 from the Literature and Social Sciences Faculty and 1 from the Philosophy Faculty.

Discovering the Lyon Metropolitan to promote it better

At the Lyon metropolitan level, the “Jeunes Ambassadeurs” program enables international students towards the end of their University studies to discover the city of Lyon and its region by being mentored by CEOs and local stakeholders.

Each coach has for main task to support a student in his/her daily life  within the city throughout the overall 6 months the program lasts, by having them discover their organization, professional environment and network but also by helping them build a project which will link their home city and Lyon. Projects are to be presented in March in the framework of the “Jeunes Ambassadeurs Trophies Contest”.

The program is now launched, so we wish best of luck to all our future Young Ambassadors!
