Learn more about Teach For America's work in the Las Vegas region.
Since 2004, Teach for America has partnered with the Clark County School District (CCSD), Caesars Entertainment, Las Vegas Sands, Inc., NV Energy, and other organizations to improve outcomes for all kids, bringing nearly 1,000 diverse corps members to the area to tackle educational inequity and poverty.
We also see our alumni continue to lead in classrooms, dedicated to making strides for our children and families. This includes Justin Brecht (Las Vegas Valley ’04,) who was named 2014-2015 Clark County Teacher of the Year and Anthony Nunez (Las Vegas Valley ’04), an elementary school principal, who was handpicked to lead the school’s turnaround as his first major leadership role.
Our alumni are working across sectors that impact education, such as Erica Mosca (Las Vegas Valley '08) who ran for state assembly to address our area’s challenges and empowers students to change their communities through her own non-profit Leaders In Training. Another example of an alum working creatively to improve outcomes: Catherine Pitcher (Las Vegas Valley ’08), a social innovator who created a board game to help entrepreneurs learn about building a company.
