AVANCE breaks the cycle of inter-generational poverty through innovative, two generation education and support for families with young children through evidence based programs. AVANCE North Texas' home office in Dallas services the Dallas-Fort Worth metropolitan area.
The Parenting program helps parents transform their homes into lifelong learning laboratories and become their child’s first teachers starting from birth. Participants attend classes during our 9-month annual school calendar. To graduate they have to complete 150 hour evidence-based parenting program. Parents receive instructional time in toy making, listen to community speakers and participate in interactive literacy activities and six home visits a year.
AVANCE uses an evidence based Parent-Child Education Program, a dual generation model where parents of young children are given the tools to become their child's first and best teachers. They also have 5 early education sites in Fort Worth to promote school readiness.
