Clark County School District
Las Vegas, NV
“Clark County School District will leverage existing strengths and engage with community partners and experts in the field to provide opportunities for student engagement via storytelling, visual arts and creative writing resulting in increased language proficiency; leadership activities to learn self-advocacy and create change; technology-embedded art forms and project-based learning to gain confidence, entrepreneurship and career-related skills. These activities create connections and allow students to explore their migration experience and related transformation of both cultural and personal identities. Students reconcile the past with the present, build a strong foundation for the future and develop personal pride.”
