LALA understands that the pathways to opportunity in Latin America are broken for most, but especially for BIPOC people. As part of our DEIA (Diversity, Equity, Inclusion and Access) efforts, the Application Support Program was created by the alumni community to directly remove barriers of access for black and indigenous youth and support them in their application process to LALA. Through the program, youth learn to value and articulate their stories, get support from mentors who have been through LALA's application process and receive tools and resources to become even more powerful young leaders. The program has placed over 59 students in LALA so far and happens every Bootcamp season. If you are part of these communities, you can sign up for this program when our camps' applications open.
