“Or take Erica Mosca, a first-generation college graduate, who moved to Las Vegas in 2008 to teach at Goldfarb Elementary School. This past year, Mosca used her savings to start “Leaders in Training,” a nonprofit that is partnering with Las Vegas high schools to help students get on the path to college. High school freshman leaders from East Career and Technical Academy, Las Vegas High School, Advanced Technologies Academy, Eldorado High School and Green Valley High School volunteer in a Goldfarb elementary classroom, receive help on their own homework from volunteer teachers three days a week and collaborate on projects that connect their high school curriculum to real life. Last month, the group traveled by train to President Barack Obama’s inauguration. While only in its first year, the program has an ambitious plan for its young leaders and future first-generation college graduates that includes improved academic performance, career internships, financial literacy, college readiness and leadership development.”

Please watch the Holiday Rally fundraiser video above created by 9th grade leader Linda Ly. In a semester, we’ve spent approximately $10,000 and are hoping to raise $11,000 for summer and Year 2 programming, which matches the Founder’s initial financial contribution. Thank you for considering donating!
