In addition, LLAMA also delivers educational programs, employment services, and a range of support and referral services to other communities and government organisations.

LLAMA’s mission is to help international students, migrants, and the established members of Australia's Latin American community to integrate into Australian society through free online English classes and by familiarising Latinos with Australian culture.
