The Youth Services Committee of Encinitas Coastal Rotary Club recently donated $1,000 to the San Dieguito High Academy AVID club to help send students on a college bus tour. The mission of AVID—Advancement Via Individual Determination—is to close the opportunity gap by preparing all students for college readiness and success in a global society. These are often the students who will be the first in their families to attend college and are from groups traditionally underrepresented in higher education. AVID Secondary equips teachers and schools with what they need to help these students succeed on a path to college and career success.
