The AVID World is full of inspiration, hope, and educational strategies that truly change the trajectory of students’ lives. We do our best to share these innovative ideas and special stories here on our Adventures in College & Career Readiness Blog, and we’re always looking for new AVID voices to feature.

Please consider this an open invitation to submit your blog ideas for consideration—if you’re an educator who utilizes AVID strategies or a current AVID student or alum, we want to hear from you!

We hope to feature a variety of educator voices, so please encourage your principals, counselors, deans, professors, elementary teachers, AVID site team teachers, and AVID Elective teachers to send us their ideas. We hope you’ll also encourage your AVID students and alums to give it a try too.  

Don’t worry if you’ve never blogged before. Our team can help!

Below are our blog basics. Review them, think it over, and take a chance. Your voice could be added to our blog!
