“I am dedicated to empowering change from the community, for the community to ensure students can play the game to change the game of systemic inequity and oppression. The opportunity to attain a college education is the foundation for underrepresented students to become leaders in their own communities.”     

Erica Mosca founded Leaders in Training in August 2012 at 26. She is a proud first-generation college graduate and social justice advocate. Part of the college access non-profit 10,000 Degrees in high school and serving as a fifth grade teacher with Teach For America, Las Vegas Valley, Mosca experienced educational inequity in both her personal and professional life.
