Churchill County alumni provide support through a new online platform

Churchill County alumni provide support through a new online platform

LEAD On launched its innovative Connector Program Monday. The new portfolio item is one way the local nonprofit aims to support high school students in Churchill County to prepare for life after high school.


According to their website, “Connectors are alumni from Churchill County who provide support to current students. Alumni are sorted based on the support they are willing to offer.”


The program launched with 20 LEAD On Connectors and eight types of support. Connectors are young professionals who graduated from high school within the past ten years. They have various career backgrounds, from software engineering to public relations, and live both locally and internationally. 


Connectors have individual profiles detailing their background, interests, and support they are willing to offer. Types of support include career, college, and involvement advice; scholarship essay, resume, and cover letter revisions; and resource and network connections.


Current high school students are encouraged to contact alumni by contacting them via the information provided on the website.


“Representation is powerful. We want Churchill County youth to be exposed to an array of stories and identities,” said LEAD On Board Member Paolo Narag. “Our hope is that they can see themselves in others and think, 'me too.' We do life together, and our team exists to help the youth of our community succeed.”


In addition to the Connector Program, LEAD On is set to host its Fourth Annual Leadership Summit in January and award its third set of scholarships to students pursuing higher education.
