About Girl Scouts of Southern Nevada

Founded on April 14, 1932 in Boulder City, Girl Scouts of Southern Nevada (GSSNV) is the preeminent leadership development organization for girls. GSSNV focuses on four key pillars: STEAM Education, Outdoor Experiences, Life Skills, and Entrepreneurship Opportunities. GSSNV serves the four Southern-most counties in Nevada: Clark, Lincoln, Nye, & Esmeralda, as well as the Southern California counties of Inyo and San Bernardino (eastern border).

About The Public Education Foundation

The Public Education Foundation was founded almost 30 years ago by leaders from the public and private sectors who believed that improving our public schools was too big a task for a school district to take on alone. At any given moment, thousands of Nevada’s children, families, and educators are benefiting from resources that The Foundation has strategically invested in schools, classrooms, and communities. Our flagship programs include: transformative leadership academies for high-achieving teachers and administrators; a collaboration with the community to award more than $2.6 million in scholarships each year; an innovative family engagement program that coaches parents how to support their children in school and also how to find employment in the community; and the Teacher EXCHANGE, which provides much-needed school supplies and materials to teachers. Over the years, we have supported educators and pushed the system to ensure our students succeed not only in the classroom, but also in life.
