“Three words that come to mind when I think about my experience working at LALA are — Learning, Growth, and Community. It is a privilege to work alongside brilliant individuals I can call my colleagues & friends who care for our students, love learning, have a commitment to excellence, and who want to make this world a better place.”

“What initially attracted me to LALA was the mission of bottom-up development in Latin America and being able to work towards macro-level, systemic change while also being directly connected to the people impacted. What still attracts me today is the incredible professional learning experience, working with passionate, intelligent people, and being inspired by the brightest students you could imagine.”
