NACER Partners


Austin Voices for Education and Youth

Austin Voices for Education and Youth creates community collaboration to strengthen families, support kids and improve schools. We believe our public schools can serve as powerful hubs for bringing neighborhoods, families, and students together to achieve positive change.

Role in NACER: AVEY will be supporting student academic success through the “Community School” framework.


Advancement Via Individual Determination (AVID)

AVID (Advancement Via Individual Determination) is a nonprofit that changes lives by helping schools shift to a more equitable, student-centered approach. We close the opportunity gap so educators can prepare all students for college, careers, and life. When schools partner with AVID, they receive professional development, a suite of resources, and ongoing support to ensure a lasting impact that maximizes their return on investment. AVID is not “one more thing to do”—our work with schools aligns with their goals to accelerate and enhance the work that is already happening.

Role in NACER: AVID is working closely with educators in our family of schools on the implementation of high-quality school programs.
