About the Program
Lubbock ISD AVID Tutors
Serving as a tutor and mentor, their goal is to take an active role in developing the academic and personal strengths of AVID students within the Lubbock Independent School District. Their mission is to assist AVID K-12 students in the successful completion of college eligibility requirements, to provide academic support in rigorous courses, and to encourage students to enroll in a four-year college or university after high school graduation.
Through mentoring and peer group networking, the AVID Tutors improve a student's confidence in their academic abilities and self-assurance to achieve educational goals. The strong working partnership among AVID for Higher Education at Texas Tech University and AVID at Lubbock ISD, provide students, faculty, and staff with resources, training, and celebrations to accelerate student learning, and to strengthen the AVID P-16 pipeline.
