Latino Leaders of America (LLA) was established in Texas as a 501 (c) 3 non-profit charitable organization in June of 2012.  LLA was established at the request of students who were seeking an organization who would guide them.

LLA is unique because it is recognized by our school district as a school based organization and a program. Thus, allowing us the opportunity to participate in school events, interact with our members during school and after school.

The LLA program is made up of six units of learning with each having seven learning objectives for our middle school chapters and eight units of learning with each having seven learning objectives for our high school chapters.  The LLA program is administered by teachers once a week after school.

LLA is currently in two middle schools and a high school servicing approximately 75 Latinos and Latinas.

We are a 100% volunteer led organization!
