INTEJ is a Peruvian non-profit association created in 1983 by a group of former university authorities and former student leaders who are aware of the importance of contributing to the integral formation of young people and projecting their development based on experience and knowledge of their environment, the country and the world. These experiences should generate values of sharing, critical spirit to innovate, entrepreneurship, respect for cultural diversity, ecology, integration, and value the importance of integration as a means of development. Such possibilities must be made without any limitation such as religion, race, gender, economic and physical abilities or other aspects.
INTEJ benefits from the support of several international organisations that promote and facilitate mobility, integration and cultural and social projection among the youth, sharing this philosophy with them, such as the International Student Identity Card Association, the International Organisation of Social Tourism. INTEJ maintains cooperation links with important universities, institutes and schools in the country.
