As part of our continued effort to support and promote healthy youth development, the Border View Family YMCA is partnering with Winward Academy to improve college access and college readiness for students in the Advancement Via Individual Determination (AVID) program at San Ysidro High School.
The program includes 135 high-achieving AVID juniors from San Ysidro High School. For the curriculum, the YMCA relies on Winward Academy, an award-winning learning program that uses an interactive teaching approach with engaging video lessons to simulate an in-person tutoring experience. The school provides transportation to the Y for the courses, with full support from the principal, teachers and families alike.
The YMCA College Readiness Program is being made possible through generous donations from City of San Diego Councilmember Vivian Moreno’s office ($10,000), San Diego Gas & Electric ($5,000) and the Winward Academy (generous in-kind and financial support).
