Learn how business and philanthropy can scale impact by partnering with educators and nonprofit leaders. NIKE led a unique public-private partnership to scale AVID (Advancement Via Individual Determination) statewide in Oregon. NIKE leveraged its talent and resources to amplify impact. Local foundations collaborated for scale. AVID helps 7,000 schools across the US shift to a more equitable, student centered approach, training 80,000 educators annually to close the opportunity gap.
