About Us

Who We Are

CAALE was founded by young Cuban-American professionals working to create better opportunities for students in our communities. We believe in the power of education, strive to accelerate the professional and personal growth of the next generation’s leaders, and are wildly passionate about our Cuban roots. This is the genesis of the Cuban American Alliance for Leadership & Education. Short hand, we are CAALE, pronounced as the Spanish word “Calle,” meaning “street” or “road.”

Why Choose US

Caale -We support students

Helping the students of today, become the leaders of tomorrow. Through our worldclass leadership development program

Mission

CAALE’s mission is centered on supporting education within our community, in all of its forms. This mission takes root in three pillars, through which we fund our own merit-based college scholarship, administer a leadership development program, and facilitate cultural education.

Vision

Through the implementation of our three-tiered mission, we aim to create a platform that produces a legacy of educating students, guiding them into successful professions, and enabling them to become valuable leaders in our community. In seeking to preserve and cultivate stronger cultural identities among our next generation of leaders, we ask our scholarship recipients to minor in Spanish and attend cultural events.
