About Us

There are 62 PIRCs nationwide and in outlying territories, coordinated through a National PIRC Coordination Center. The first PIRC project at the Education Alliance began in 2003 as a small grant with six schools.  In 2006 the statewide project was formed and expanded the number of programs and services offered throughout Nevada.
