What We Fund
College-Bound! The AVID family
Among the programs funded by SHSEF is the Advancing Via Individual Determination (AVID) Program at Sequoia, which focuses on closing the opportunity gap among at-risk students.
“AVID has given me confidence to prove not only to myself but to the people around me that I can achieve everything I set my mind to.”
