We are excited to offer a trip to Boston and New York City exclusively for members of the AVID Club, an organization dedicated to preparing and exposing students to abundant college and career opportunities. We hope to send at least fifteen students on this trip; many of which are high achievers but have very little personal opportunity. While we urge all West Fresno Middle School students to work towards college, even our most ambitious students have trouble conceptualizing a goal beyond the confines of their low-income neighborhoods. The trip coordinators are wholeheartedly devoted to changing the life trajectories of underprivileged students, starting with this once in a lifetime trip across the country!
We strongly believe that these fifteen students have the capacity to broaden the worldview of their peers and have a tremendous impact on the rural and impoverished community of which they are members of. In order to facilitate this growth in their lives, they need your financial support.
Goal: To expose students to world-class colleges, museums, and opportunities available to highly educated Americans, such that they are themselves motivated to pursue an ambitious course of study and trajectory for their future.
