About Us

At LALA we are embarking on a lifelong mission to promote sustainable economic development and strengthen democratic governance in Latin America by finding, developing and connecting a new generation of principled and socially innovative young leaders.

We bring these cohorts together in week-long bootcamps  throughout Latin America, where the magic starts: students gain tools (e.g. in socio-emotional learning, design-thinking, and social-entrepreneurship) and get connected to other changemakers who, together, help them lead the change in their communities. But that’s just the beginning - in the near future LALA will open an eighteen-month program in Medellin, where students fine-tune those leadership skills through hands-on, community-based projects, informed by their curriculum.
