High School AVID Mentor
Since 2014, I have been mentoring for the AVID program at Thomas Jefferson High School through the Goodwill program. Through this program, I help students prepare for the application process for employment, scholarships, and college. I work hands-on the prepare them for the professional world and engage with them as mentor and a friend.
What Avid Does
Simply, AVID trains educators to use proven practices in order to prepare students for success in high school, college, and a career, especially students traditionally underrepresented in higher education.
How Avid Works
AVID brings research‐based strategies and curriculum to educational institutions in elementary, secondary, and higher education. The AVID System annually provides more than 30,000 educators with training and methodologies that develop students’ critical thinking, literacy, and math skills across all content areas throughout the entire campus, in what we call Schoolwide AVID.
As a result, policymakers and educators now consider AVID's mission to be an essential strategy for closing the achievement gap, making college access and success available to all students.
