Happy Family


We are here to 

support you!


LALA is different from other educational institutions in Latin America, and we know it can be difficult at first to fully understand our work. On this page, you will find summarized information about our work, as well as resources tailored for our students’ families. We want to ally with you so we can work together to support our young Latin American promising leaders!




What is the Latin American

Leadership Academy


We believe that empowering Latin America's most promising young leaders to create the change they want to see is the best way to transform the region. LALA identifies young leaders from across the continent with demonstrated leadership potential, a passion for Latin America, an entrepreneurial spirit, and a track record of community service. LALA continues to empower these leaders by connecting them to our Ecosystem- a network of changemakers composed of our Alumni, our donors, partner organizations, and educational institutions.
