The Latte Training Academy, Inc. (LTA) is a 501c3 non-profit organization located in the U.S. Commonwealth of the Northern Mariana Islands (CNMI). The organization was founded in 2013 in response to the need to develop the local workforce in the CNMI. Since its inception in 2013, LTA has partnered with the CNMI Public School System (PSS), the CNMI Department of Labor, the CNMI Department of Commerce, the CNMI Small Business Development Center (SBDC), the CNMI Scholarship Office and the United States Department of Agriculture (USDA) to provide a wide array of training programs.
While the Latte Training Academy, Inc. is committed to its mission of workforce development, the organization holds true to its designation as a Federal 501c3 non-profit. The organization’s leadership is devoted to giving back to the communities in which it operates. In 2015, the Board of Directors established the Founders Scholarship Program with $11,000.00 in college scholarships for LTA participants available each year. To date, the organization has awarded more than $22,000.00 to PSS graduates to support their efforts during their college careers. The Latte Training Academy, Inc. believes that the continued education and career development of its students is essential to the long-term success of the individual, as well as the overall community in which the student resides.
