What We Do
Avenue Scholars’ mission is to ensure careers for committed students of hope and need through education/training and supportive relationships.
Avenue Scholars provides individualized support services to help students from low-income backgrounds identify and ultimately enter financially sustaining careers. Each Avenue Scholar is assigned a Career Coach, who provides long-term comprehensive support and guides students’ personal and career-related development during their junior and senior years of high school, through postsecondary education/training and into a career. Our Business Outreach Team also engages area businesses to provide career exploration, preparation, and placement opportunities to Avenue Scholars.
