High School is tough. You’re trying to figure out what life is about, how to pass that math test, and how to avoid the jerk in gym class. High school’s not easy, but it’s damn near impossible when you don’t have a place to sleep at night. In Las Vegas, there are over 6,000 kids that are either homeless or severely disadvantaged.
NEW VIDEO: Project 150 – High School is Tough Enough
It’s why Project 150 was created. Their mission is to help homeless and disadvantage high school students in Las Vegas stay in school. Think couch surfers, living out of a backpack, parents absent or unable to care for them. Many of these kids don’t have the basic necessities that you and I take for granted, clean socks and underwear, toothbrush and toothpaste, deodorant, food, transportation, notebooks, pens, paper. These kids are forced to make the difficult decision to either stay in school and go without, or drop out and get a job in order to take care of themselves.
A future without a high school diploma is not much of a future. If we can get these kids to graduate, their chances of success in life increase exponentially. Project 150 provides these kids free of charge, clothes, food, school supplies, whatever the kids need to make it through. The goal is simple, do whatever it takes to get these kids to graduate. Project 150 is run by an amazing group of dedicated people who currently serve 47 high schools in Las Vegas and 15 high schools in Reno.
