For over 40 years, AVID has conveyed proven educational practices that activate teacher and student agency as well as support the development of thriving learning cultures. Through exemplary professional learning and rigorous curriculum, we help teachers and students find their powerful voices. This history of accomplishment helps us move educators from belief to action.

Educators need voice and choice in their professional learning journey. Providing immersive, engaging, ongoing experiences that build educator agency by giving them a supportive space for reflection and growth is what AVID does in our professional learning.

AVID does not force a pre-packaged, one-size-fits-all curriculum on educators. We offer turn-key strategies and instructional practices that educators can easily incorporate into every content area and grade level. With a wide array of options in both digital and face-to-face formats, our professional learning opportunities empower educators and enable them to contribute to professional development work at their schools.
