CARSON CITY — A program designed to help at-risk students stay in school and become successful after graduation has received a $1.25 million grant that will allow its expansion into more Las Vegas area schools.
An organization called USA Funds awarded the grant to the Jobs for Nevada’s Graduates program established by Gov. Brian Sandoval in 2012. The program serves 21 schools in eight counties and has a goal of expanding to 50 schools across the state.
