What is AVID?
Group of AVID studentsWhat is AVID?

AVID (Advancement Via Individual Determination) is a nonprofit that changes lives by helping schools shift to a more equitable, student-centered approach. We train 70,000 educators annually to close the opportunity gap, so they can prepare all students for college, careers, and life.

When schools partner with AVID, they receive professional development, a suite of resources, and ongoing support to ensure a lasting impact that maximizes their return on investment. AVID is not “one more thing to do”—our work with schools aligns with their goals to accelerate and enhance the work that is already happening.

Professional Learning That Sticks
AVID's professional learning benefits both beginning and experienced educators. Here, educators reevaluate their beliefs and expectations around student potential and learn and practice activities that transform classrooms and campuses. Trainings cover all core content areas and all grade levels in topics such as Culturally Relevant Teaching, Academic Language and Literacy, and Digital Teaching and Learning.

Resources That Drive School Transformation
AVID offers a variety of classroom activities, lesson plans, professional learning videos, and timely articles that are relevant to students. These tools help educators implement and refine instructional practices. They also help educators provide the key academic and social supports students need to thrive. Schools can utilize the professional learning modules and materials for in-service training and can access all of these resources year-round.

Feedback and Follow-Up to Keep Schools on Track
AVID provides more than just a training and a few classroom resources. AVID provides schools a direct line of support to regional teams, data tracking, planning guides, and self-assessments to help schools measure their success and refine their approach. AVID empowers schools to create change in a way that is sustainable, measured, and responsive to campus needs.
