My Nonprofit Reviews
Review for Nevada Public Education Foundation, Carson City, NV, USA
I am a 48 year resident of Nevada, twenty year resident of North Las Vegas and a twenty-eight year resident of Las Vegas. I am Byron A. Goynes, son of Theron H. and Naomi D. Goynes namesakes of Theron H. and Naomi D. Goynes Elementary School located in North Las Vegas. My parents are still living and we as a family, a village, are a dedicated education family. My sister, Kimberly Goynes is a Counselor at Arbor View High School and my sister Pamela Goynes-Brown is an Assistant Principal at Jesse Scott Elementary School. I have a cousin Cynthia Ireland who is an Assistant Principal at Cunningham Elementary School. And I am a licensed substitute teacher. We all embrace the Ready for Life movement.
Our youth who are educated and graduated and ready to learn are often ready to go onto college, graduate and become productive members of the Las Vegas and North Las Vegas communities. This organization believes in the ole saying “It takes a village to raise a child”. By connecting youth with adults and peers who “REALLY CARE” makes all the difference in the world. We whole heartedly support the Nevada Public Education Foundation.
I've personally experienced the results of this organization in...
Keeping their mission alive.
If I had to make changes to this organization, I would...
Ask that teachers be able to join NPEF in part-time paid roles.
