Latinas Leading Tomorrow, (LLT) is a non-profit organization founded in 2004 in Arlington, Virginia that originated as an after-school program at Wakefield High School by Latina students and their counselor, Madeline LaSalle. The program was created to address the growing needs of young, first generation, college bound Latinas and provide Latina role models, professionals from the DC metro area to guide them through the process. Since its inception, LLT has provided services for approximately 1,300 students and their families.
With more than 150 girls participating in program activities each year, LLT became an independent 501(c)(3) non-profit organization in 2012 to expand its reach to Latina students beyond Arlington Public Schools. In 2013, Alexandria City Public Schools partnered with LLT to provide the C.O.R.E. after-school program at its schools.
In 2019, LLT began to reach out to communities in Fairfax and Prince William counties in Northern Virginia and Montgomery County in Maryland to offer LLT programming.
