Advancement Via Individual Determination (AVID)
AVID is a college-readiness program designed to increase the number of students who enroll in four-year colleges by providing academic instruction and other support to prepare them for eligibility. AVID students participate in extra-curricular and community activities. The AVID Immokalee High School students visited VCC touring our Club with our members as their mentor. AVID's mission is to close the achievement gap by preparing all students for college readiness and success in a global society.
The students toured Vanderbilt Country Club and received a brief overview from the Club management staff explaining the road they traveled to get to where they are today and a little about their roles at the Club. Several key departmental managers speak to the students and then join the students and their mentors for brunch at our Club.
