The Greenwich Alliance for Education Announces “The Party” for AVID

Join The Party to recognize Greenwich Public School AVID (Advancement Via Individual Determination) alumni and educators in celebrating 10 years of college dreams made possible by the Greenwich Alliance for Education.

The Party will be a fun-filled benefit on June 10 at Arch Street Teen Center to recognize the AVID classes, their families, and teachers from 2013-2023.

The evening promises to be one of inspiration and gratitude, looking back at a decade of empowering young minds. The benefit fundraiser will include a special performance by Kovac Brothers, delicious food provided by Pizza Luca, the Taco Guy, a silent auction and more.

AVID is a shared vision and commitment between the Greenwich Alliance and Greenwich Public Schools. A national college-readiness system, AVID’s mission is to close the opportunity gap by preparing all students for college and career readiness and success in a global society. AVID students overcome obstacles and achieve success. They graduate and attend college at higher rates, but more importantly, they can think critically, collaborate, and set high expectations to conquer the challenges that await them confidently.

AVID was initially funded by a grant from the Alliance in 2008. Greenwich Public Schools now runs the program, although the Alliance continues to support students, teachers, and alums through AVID SUCCESS.

The Party will be an unforgettable celebration of education and community in Greenwich!
