Las Vegas’ Next Leaders May Come From Program for Underprivileged Kids
Meghin Delaney, Las Vegas Review-Journal
Erica Mosca first experienced education inequality as a teenager in California. Her dad, chasing a better job, moved the family across the state to a solidly middle-class area from a poorer community. All of a sudden, school got hard for Mosca. She was able to thrive thanks to a program that helped first-generation students apply to college.
Today, Mosca is leading the charge to combat the disparity she once felt through Leaders in Training, an effort aimed at helping underprivileged students in Las Vegas navigate high school and college, all while training them to become community leaders.
