Ongoing Inequity in Education and in Access to Opportunity Fuels Need for CORE Program Expansion
LAS VEGAS – With an unwavering commitment to empower, enrich and educate underserved students and their families to lead choice-filled lives, the education non- profit CORE has promoted Founder and Executive Director Lindsay Harper to serve as Chief Executive Officer. In this role, Harper will lead the CORE model expansion and strategic partnership development with the mission to ensure more students and families have access to the two-generational, long-term, and equity focused program.
Subsequently, CORE is launching a search for a new Executive Director who will take the lead on the daily business of the organization ensuring strong financial, staffing, and transparency. CORE is looking for a professional who is committed to equity, anti-racism, and making CORE the most effective and impactful non-profit organization as possible. The job posting is now available on LinkedIn and Indeed.com.
“The continued high level of inequity in our community, particularly as it relates to education and access to opportunity is truly disheartening,” said Rory Reid, CORE Board Member and Chief Executive Officer of The Rogers Foundation. “As the founder of CORE, Lindsay has long recognized that the most powerful way to ensure economic mobility and equity is to invest in children and their families over a long-term period and with a holistic approach. The need is urgent, and Lindsay is perfectly suited to grow the program and make an even greater impact.”
“Over the past year, we have collectively been exploring ways to ensure CORE’s long-term sustainability, something we’ve been striving for since our earliest days,” said Amy Hunter Board of Trustees Chair for CORE. “The need is greater than ever to serve our Scholars and their families as well as to extend our reach to others who can also benefit from the CORE model. We are excited to scale and sustain CORE’s growth and impact throughout Southern Nevada and beyond. We recognize it will take rigor in strategic direction setting, the establishment of new partnerships, and an eye toward continual innovation. We have the utmost confidence that Lindsay is the right person to take us to this next stage.”
Using innovative and proven programming, such as the two-generational model and social- emotional learning, CORE works to ensure student success through self-exploration. CORE has helped impact hundreds of historically underserved students and their families, allowing them to achieve economic mobility and chart their own path to a choice-filled life.
