Educate & Unite the Leaders of Central America


The corruption of Central American political leaders is widely recognized as a crippling epidemic that stifles economic growth and prevents millions of latin@s access to healthcare, education, and other basic necesities like food and clean water. We serve leaders from across this region by accompanying them through rigorous and comprehensive leadership development opportunities that hone their skills and expand their networks, enabling them lead their communities and countries into a new era.

Guatemala is still reeling from a 30 year conflict that devasted the country through voilence, deception and discrimination. The effects of this time are everywhere -- 51% of the citizenry live on US $2 or less a day and Guatemala has one of the highest rates of illiteracy and child malnutrition globally. Local NGO's make it their mission change these statistics through humanitarian projects, but they lack skilled leadership, networks, and the motivation to collaborate among themselves.


ALG provides leaders across Central America with access to trainings that hone their leadership skills and connect them to a growing network of social changemakers. Our Traveling Workshop, Certificate in Leadership and Collaboration, and other specialized team trainings for NGOs (on request) invite leaders who are ready for personal and professional growth to transform themselves and their work. We accompany them as they become leaders capable of ushering in a new era for this region together.

Long-Term Impact

We work toward a Central America that is safe, healthy, and happy. This means an absence of gangs, corrupt leaders, and domestic violence. It means quality healthcare and education, clean water and opportunities for economic growth. We believe that through leadership training and an active network of collaborators, this region will see NGO's fufilling their missions in ways never considered possible. When NGO's can do that they bring better governments, better jobs, and better lives to all.
