Ep. 35: Summer Lovin': PodCrushing

It is summer time and we (allegedly) have more time to relax and enjoy life. With this in mind, we decided to catch up on some of our current favorite podcasts. We like these podcasts and think that if you like us, you may also enjoy some of these. Hopefully they may also allow you to enjoy the summer even more.

We are joined by Erica Mosca, the Founder and Executive Director of Leaders In Training (https://www.LITLV.org); Nikol Leyva, Program Manager at Leaders In Training; and Mrs. Telles along with her young adult children (and LIT Leaders) Tajari and Taja’nai. We talk about the work and impact of Leaders In Training, their long term goal for the program, and learn how parents and students can learn to better advocate for their education.

If you would like to help out by donating to Leaders In Training, go to: https://www.litlv.org/donate. LIT is also always looking for volunteers to help out with their programs or to provide transportation for their Leaders. Visit their website for more information - https://www.LITLV.org.

We would like to thank Sal, the Branch Manager, and the rest of the staff of the East Las Vegas Library for hosting us, and a special shout out to Anna from the Las Vegas Clark County Library. We also could not have done this without the entire Wild & Free team, Jose Sotelo & Ashleigh Pacheco (and lil Sebastian), Bertha Gutierrez, and Raven (who had dog business to attend to and could not make the live taping).
