Join our AVID Alumni Network!

Since the first class of AVID Elective Senior graduated in 1983, it is estimated that there are nearly 1 million AVID Alumni. Their attachment to AVID remains strong, and they are eager to stay connected, but they have had minimal opportunities to reengage with AVID.

In 2023, AVID Center launched AVID Alumni Services to build a vibrant and sustainable alumni community and create meaningful events and webinars that extend AVID’s impact and visibility. We will address gaps in opportunity knowledge for high school students and their families, guardians, or mentors by providing and promoting easy-to-use AVID Open Access resources that spark their interest in college and careers, broaden their understanding, and stairstep them through the process.

Together with AVID champions, AVID will form mutually beneficial relationships with and amongst AVID alumni across the world to continue to support increased success in college and careers.

Attend the AVID Alumni Legacy Summit

The inaugural AVID Alumni Legacy Summit will take place during the AVID National Conference on Wednesday, November 29 in San Diego at the Manchester Grand Hyatt.

This complimentary two-part event features a concurrent session, The AVID Alumni Journey — Trailblazers Return to Share Learnings (3:15–4:30 pm) and the AVID Alumni Reunion (4:30–6:00 pm), where attendees will have a unique opportunity to reconnect and network with peers in a fun setting.

The Summit is open to all AVID alumni, their AVID Elective teachers, District Directors, and Site Coordinators who have completed their profile in the Community of Champions portal. AVID alumni and the educators who supported them along their journey do not need to register for the National Conference to attend.

Register today and help spread the word with your network of AVID alumni. Space is limited.
