The Adams AVID Ambassadors are students at Adams Middle School located in Richmond, Ca. The students in our class are engaged in learning the national AVID curriculum through service learning becasue we recognize that sometimes it is hard for students to have academic success when they face the type of problems that are abound in communities like Richmond.
We recognize students travel through neighborhoods that have problems with gangs, drugs, homelessness. We understand that in poor communities some of our peers suffer from debilitating disease and still try to make it through the academic process and the AVID students want to help. We recognize that as a town we face major environmental challenges and we want to make a difference.
