We love having community members come to visit!

AVID’s mission is to close the achievement gap by preparing all students for college readiness and success in a global society. 

 

We are interested in hearing “personal stories." 

 

Possible talking points could include:    

Childhood background

Family dynamics

Activities (sports/clubs) growing up

*Obstacles you overcame*

Work ethic

Strategies that helped you become successful 

Citizenship

Leadership

What makes someone employable to you

 

 

Some presenters do formal presentations, some do not!
