FOC is proud to partner with LALA on our first pilot initiative: English Mentors ’21. 
 
For the remainder of this year, participating FOC mentors will guide weekly English conversation with LALA youth who are preparing for their LALA Academy studies, a 3-month program conducted primarily in English beginning in February 2022. We hope you’ll consider sharing your time and your professional wisdom with the LALA youth from Colombia, Paraguay, and Brazil as they prepare for the next phase of their learning journeys. Further details are in the announcement above. Thank you!
