Our Mission


The primary goal is to make a meaningful difference in the lives of youth in the inner city communities based on meeting their needs. The secondary goal is to provide after school and summer programs with mentors and volunteers that assist in building self confidence and self esteem, character and discipline, pride and determination, self-achievement, accomplishment and responsibility, as well as initiative and direction. The third goal is to identify with our youth as they transition into adulthood and offer them positive support system to avoid the pitfalls that are damaging to their lives. The focus is to empower youth to make positive changes and solid decisions in their lives. 


The AVI Foundation, Inc. desires to capture the attention and imagination of our youth through promoting HOPE while empowering their minds to provide preparation and acceptance of potentially life altering situations while guiding them through personal changes and belief in accomplishment.
