Why Medellin?

Living spaces and life skills

  • We aim to prepare you to take ownership of your own life. You will share apartments and create co-living arrangements with your peers to create a microcosm of a beautiful culture and society.

  • To make this experience fun and safe, we will live in Poblado, the safest neighborhood in Medellín and one of the most modern spaces in the region. You will live in a wonderful environment that you will feel proud to care for.

  • By deliberately practicing life skills in community, you will leave LALA with essential interpersonal skills that will accelerate your personal growth.

independent work

  • Participants will have the opportunity to participate in a range of practical, entrepreneurial and professional capacity-building experiences.

  • All students will co-construct with their LALA coaches a parallel work-study-life skills program.

The safety of our students, faculty and staff is our biggest priority. All residences where our students live will have security. We will insist on contractual obligations that will organize travel and curfew norms. Students and parents will have access to faculty and staff in the event of urgent communication.


Medellín has eight of the best hospitals in Latin America: facilities with world-class infrastructure and personnel, at a much lower cost than elsewhere. The World Health Organization (WHO) ranks Colombia’s health system as #22 out of 191 ranked countries. This is ahead of Germany (#25), Canada (#30), Australia (#32), the United States (#37), and ahead of all other Latin American countries.
