The NVSTI program sponsored by the U.S. Department of Transportation, Nevada Department of Transportation, and Federal Highway Administration is open to participants attending public and private high schools across the State. The NVSTI summer camp is an extremely intense and structured learning opportunity for youth in the high school system of Nevada.

 

The curriculum will expose participants to new frontiers and adventures such as highway design, transportation of people and cargo, inter-modalism, laws, regulations, safety, and career opportunities. In addition, participants will participate in college preparation activities, computer training, academic enhancement activities, college lectures, field trips, and hands-on projects.

The 2019 Bank of America Student Leaders Program is available to all the High Schools in CCSD.  

 

Since its inception in 2004, the Bank of America Student Leaders Program has recognized more than 2,800 exemplary high school juniors and seniors who have a passion for improving their communities.  The program helps students gain a greater understanding of how nonprofits create impact in the community and helps develop them as the next generation of community leaders through two components:

  •  A summer eight-week paid internship with a local nonprofit organization. This internship is designed to provide opportunities for the students to develop and apply leadership skills through hands-on work experience, while raising their awareness of community issues addressed by their partner organization. 
  • The week-long, all-expense paid Student Leadership Summit in Washington, D.C. from July 8 – 13, 2019. Conducted in partnership with the Close Up Foundation, the Summit introduces students to aspects of civic, social and business leadership and provides them with knowledge and skills they will use throughout their life to create positive community change.

 

Please note the application deadline of February 1, 2019.

You’re invited to intern with Let America Vote, Jason Kander’s grassroots organization that is dedicated to protecting voting rights. We are now accepting applications for our summer internship and fellowship programs. We are looking for bright, energetic individuals who want to learn the nuts and bolts of how top-notch grassroots organizing works.

 

You will learn the basics of how to build a grassroots field program and help elect candidates who will fight to support and protect our fundamental right to vote. From engaging in daily field activities to learning from seasoned campaign staff to hearing from a variety of high-profile political guest speakers; this internship is unlike any other in politics. By learning the basics of campaign and political organizing, we will not only elect candidates who stand up for democracy and voting rights in 2018, but teach everyone involved the skills necessary to organize in their communities and even run campaigns in 2018 and beyond.

 

Hours are very flexible, and the team here at Let America Vote is a lot of fun! No experience is necessary. You will walk out the door at the end of the internship knowing how to run a local field program, as well as having met some great friends.


Additionally, the Let America Vote offers a fellowship program if you’re looking to be even more involved. With an expanded time commitment, fellows will also benefit from our Field Organizer Training Program, where they’ll learn about grassroots organizing from a team of experts. This will prepare you to be even more proactive in your role, ensuring you can work effectively on future advocacy, political campaigns, and other modes of valuable civic engagement.

Student Interactions with Science, Technology, Engineering, and Mathematics (SISTEM) 

The Student Interactions with STEM (SISTEM) program is a series of talks and activities open to all high school students in Southern Nevada. 

The Spring 2019 SISTEM series will be held at the Science and Engineering Building on the University of Nevada, Las Vegas campus, and it is a program for high school students to learn about potential careers with a STEM degree. We feel this event will be incredibly beneficial for our local students, as we have invited professionals in the STEM fields to give students a series of talks and they will prepare hands-on activities so that students can learn more about various STEM careers and research. Hopefully, SISTEM will encourage more students to enroll in STEM undergraduate programs here in southern Nevada. This is a very exciting opportunity to influence and motivate the next generation of engineers, mathematicians, and scientists!

The program in Spring 2019 will run in two cycles with presentations on one evening per week for five consecutive weeks. The first cycle is on Tuesdays from 5:30 pm to 7:30 pm from January 22, 2019, until February 19, 2019; the second cycle is on Wednesdays from 5:30 pm to 7:30 pm from March 13, 2019, until April 10, 2019.
