In cooperation with the privately run Universidad Panamericana Mexico City campus and the public Universidad Intercultural in the State of Mexico, NAEIF organized the second North American Leadership Institute during 17 learning-packed days in July 2007. Participants took classes in Mexico City in preparation for five days of interaction with rural indigenous communities and families in the State of Mexico.

The Symposium was organized by an international student committee led by Dr. Georgina Prez-Liz, the winner of NAEIF's 2004 Leadership Award  and recently named Chair of the NAEIF Board of Directors.

Working together with the NGO Medicina y Asistencia Social in the poorest zone of all Mexico, NAEIF is currently seeking the help of university and high school groups in Canada, Mexico and the US so as to increase the serving capacity of their commercially-outfitted kitchen and dining hall for children. MAS is striving to grow the program's service from 100 to 500 indigenous children daily. In collaboration with the Medical School of the Universidad Panamericana, this Mexican foundation maximizes the benefits of its meal program by providing a wide range of basic medical services to these same children and their families.
