Muchas veces escuchamos que hay que creerle a la juventud, que los jóvenes son el presente y no el futuro, pero te has puesto a pensar en ¿qué haces para que los jóvenes sean el factor clave en el cambio mundial? Diego Ontaneda lo tiene muy claro, este joven Peruano se dio a la tarea de invitar a jóvenes destacados alrededor de latinoamérica y hacer que se conecten a través de un modelo educativo de alta calidad enmarcado en liderazgo.

We often hear that we have to believe in youth, that young people are the present and not the future, but have you given thought about how one can make young people the key factor in global change?

Diego Ontaneda has a very clear idea. This young Peruvian was given the task of inviting outstanding young people around Latin America and making them connect with a high-quality educational model framed around leadership and based on the talents of the individuals,  not in their purchasing power when it comes to accessing higher education.

Diego created the Latin American Leadership Academy (LALA), and has been developing pilot projects in Latin America that validate his educational model and the needs of those who enter the program. Today he told us a little bit about one of them, the Colombia Leadership Bootcamp, held in Selina Medellín , and some of the participants told us a little about their experiences too.
