Valeria Navarro is studying business administration at the preparatory school incorporated into the University of Guadalajara (UdeG) and pays 500 pesos a week there. For her, the first My Social Service Expo it means looking for job opportunities to pay for your studies and do social service at the same time.
“I am interested in working in one of them because while I study they can pay me half the price of the degree”
“There are many opportunities here, I am interested in working in one of them because while I study they can pay me half the price of the degree. I need it because sometimes it’s expensive and I don’t have the money to pay. In high school I pay about 500 pesos a week and this would be an opportunity to continue studying,” she shared.
The My Social Service Expo of the UdeG is part of the activities of the 11th social service forum and 6th professional internship forum of the Social Service Network of the Central West Region of ANUIES, where the XVII delivery of the Irene Robledo García Award “For a more Human Humanity” was also made.
“(It is important) to link students with their society and the UdeG with the communities because right now our country and the state are going through complicated situations after the COVID-19 pandemic and what we need is that young people, the University and the community are linked and we believe that it is through social service because it is giving back to the community so much that it has given to the students”, said Nallely Robles Ortiz, head of the Social Service Unit of the UdeG.
For the Expo, different companies, town halls and associations that have an agreement with the UdeG on social services were invited to set up a stand free of charge to create a space where students know the activities they are going to do and can choose.
For example, there is the civil association Un Salto Con Destino, the COMUDE of Tonalá and the same campaign of the UdeG “Nos Late Servir”.

Raymundo García Hernández, 18 years old and a Computer Science student, was another of those interested in what the instances and companies could offer, since he seeks to apply the knowledge he has, learn more and even be part of the company as an employee.
“They help me to get professional practice and experience because in these times everything asks for experience and, ifi can stay in the company where i am working i can take my work from that company. If I do my service and internship well, they can give me immediate hiring,” she shared.
For now, Raymundo is dedicated to hairdressing; however, he considered that with this connection he could achieve the direction he wants to take in his career, since he would like to be a programmer.
The head of the Social Service Unit added that in the first delivery of this expo, which ends at 7:00 pm, they have already received more than 700 students.
