About LLA


“If you would have told younger me, back in 2019, that I’m here now thinking about going to college, I would have laughed. Being at LLA, I went from a straight-F student to a straight-A student. A lot of (LLA students) actually know me as a positive influence, and I’m very proud to say that.”

Since opening our doors in 1998, LLA has collected process and outcome evaluation data that demonstrates our ability to reach disconnected young people. Our innovative approach has been recognized by local, state, and national education experts, and documented in our impact and evaluation reports.
