"My V-Camp was a turning point for me to see the person I want to become and how much social impact has to deal with that person. For the first time in years, I am in love with my future and the things I’m capable of doing, and the people I’m able to help."

"I would have never imagined that I would connect so deeply with people through a series of video calls. The love and power of LALA come through everywhere, and it was extremely amazing to experience being one of the first people to receive its love through a screen thanks to technology."

Trajectory Summary

 
 
 
 
 
 

Important Note for Applicants and Prospective Students: This is intended to provide an example of what to expect from the Latin American Leadership Academy Virtual Camp. The information below is tentative and subject to change.​

 
 

PHASE 1: Community Building

PHASE 2: Practice of Inquiry Methods

 

Students take the time to share about themselves and hear about each other in order to create a rich learning community for students and their fellow participants.

PHASE 3: Becoming Storytellers

 

Students learn the importance of crafting a narrative and the role that story plays in any leadership journey. Students internalize how to use narrative to supercharge the way they educate themselves and others, as well as to mobilize resources and communities.

PHASE 5: Arriving at the Turning Point

Students begin to set a plan in motion that orients them towards understanding and pursuing their social impact identity and goals. 

Students practice methods of inquiry that yield deeper connections and understanding of themselves and others. Through learning about strength-based approaches and interviewing each other, students practice vulnerability by speaking their truth and ultimately deepening community connections.

PHASE 4: Becoming Problem Understanders

 

Students learn the importance of crafting a narrative and the role that story plays in any leadership journey. Students internalize how to use narrative to supercharge the way they educate themselves and others, as well as to mobilize resources and communities.

PHASE 6: Closing, Final Shares & Ecosystem

 

Students practice vulnerability by doing a final share that enables the community to better understand who they are. The strengthened V-Camp cohort explores how to effectively transition out of meaningful experiences and use them to further grow and develop themselves and their social impact mission.
