Coordenador(a) I de Mentoria e Operações de Acampamentos

Diversity and inclusion are fundamental values at LALA. Faced with a history of elitism, racism, sexism, homophobia, and discrimination in Latin America, we seek to contribute to a change of scenery not only through LALA but within LALA. We value diversity of identities, lived experiences, skills, perspectives, and worldviews. Diversity will make us stronger and wiser. We know that our diversity will inspire more young Latin Americans to aim for even greater goals. Therefore, we encourage interested candidates from historically underrepresented identities and communities in leadership roles to apply for this and all other positions at LALA!

Estela Naula

Junior Manager for Admissions

I come from a small town in Lichinga, Mozambique (Southern Africa), where young people need opportunities to join communities like LALA but can’t due to lack of access. Being at LALA allows me to support young people in raising funds so they can pursue their dreams. That way, I am helping young Estelinha, who didn’t have the same support. If you are looking for a community that, regardless of your background, is there to hug you, join our community. At LALA, we celebrate your essence, support your dreams, and ensure you achieve your highest potential in your personal, professional, and academic journey. Join LALA, and you are not alone.

LALA is a special organization where people are genuinely the focus of all our actions! Our team shows exceptional care and affection, both for each other and for the young people we support, and our daily commitment is to positively impact Latin America by promoting issues such as leadership, humanity, emotional intelligence, and entrepreneurship. In just one year, I feel that I have learned and grown immensely, having the opportunity to put my purpose into practice alongside great talents!

Bruno Carmo

Associate for Brazil Operations

As a LALíder who joined the LALA Team, I quickly discovered a vibrant community that embodies the principles we learned during the Camp. Here, I encountered a professionally stimulating and dynamic atmosphere alongside an enriching learning environment that supported my personal growth with the support of my colleagues. Guided by a deep connection with our shared mission of fostering positive change and empowering young people across the continent, we are focused every day on ensuring the students we serve will lead the change for tomorrow!
