Team Clark County organized an enthusiastic group of individuals to volunteer at Three Square on November 25, 2018. Our team contributed their time to help sort and sanitize enough bins to distribute 21,000 Kids Cafe meals for children who are food insecure and hungry in our community.

Through our support and help of Three Square’s 1,600 community partners, including non-profit and faith-based organizations, schools and feeding sites throughout Southern Nevada, Three Square is able to work towards serving the 271,000 people in our community who are food insecure.

We look forward to more volunteer opportunities with Three Square in the near future!

ALCC Runs for Vegas Strong 5K

Ten staff members took on the Vegas Strong 5K in downtown Las Vegas on September 29th as a part of supporting the Health and Wellness program and supporting the community. The staff had a wonderful time attending this event as a group and getting to know one another more along with the community of Las Vegas as there were 2,000 participants. Some staff have never done a 5K before and some had a 5K on their bucket list. We look forward to doing more 5K run/walks as a group in the future.

Acelero Learning profiled by Bellwether Education Partners' in New Report on coaching in early childhood Education

Acelero Learning is honored to be featured as one of several programs profiled by Bellwether Education Partners' new report on coaching in early childhood education. The report, published on the tenth anniversary of the 2007 re-authorization of Head Start, focuses on how teacher coaching has been implemented in a variety of different programs across the country.

The new Head Start Program Performance Standards place a heavy emphasis on coaching and ongoing professional development for teaching staff. Coaching has also been an area of particular interest at Acelero Learning. Through years of research, innovation and ongoing quality-focused initiatives across the program, we have developed a robust, evidence-based coaching model that supports teachers and coaches alike.

The Bellwether report describes how this model works in practice at our Camden / Philadelphia local program, and some of the key takeaways that our education team has discovered as this system has been developed, refined and implemented at a diverse set of delegate programs across the country. 

Henry Wilde, CEO and co-founder of Acelero Learning, is enthusiastic about the report. "Coaching is an integral part of our approach to early education, and based on our research, it has been one of the key drivers that helps to support positive outcomes for children in Head Start and Early Head Start," he notes. "We are honored to have been profiled Bellwether report, and particularly for our Camden/Philadelphia program to have the opportunity to share their work. It is important for both policymakers and practitioners to be actively engaged in learning about how coaching initiatives are rolling out on the ground, and this report helps to illustrate both the work that goes into these initiatives as well as the deep thinking and analysis that we always go back to in order to make them better."
