OUTSET AND CRISIS
Education is at the forefront of todays issues From political platforms, to being a driving force in the trajectory of our lives, today, it has become imperative almost mandatory to obtain secondary education. An advanced degree or advanced certification, has not only become the norm, but in many cases, the minimum.
Unfortunately, this can sometimes be at odds with the resources available to a majority aspiring undergraduate students. Many are forced to take out hefty loans and accumulate years, sometimes decades, worth of debt to pursue their educational dreams. For others, its a dream delayed, as they must enter the workforce with their opportunity restrained By their circumstances.
OPPORTUNITY (CRISIS MANANGEMENT)
The process of finding and selecting a college is difficult in itself, finding the money and the resources needed to pay for it. Shouldnt be!
AVO wants to tackle the problems facing many current, former and would-be students on three levels.
OPPORTUNITY/THREE LEVELS (1) Helping to make College Affordable - by providing its members the opportunity to pursue advanced degrees at a substantially lesser cost and potentially even debt-free. Simply put, each and every year, AVO members will receive millions in scholarships, awards and tuition reduction. (2) Helping to reduce the Debt Students are faced with - AVO provides graduate members a chance to have their existing student loans paid off. Tens of thousands of dollars will be given away to graduate members each and every year to do just that. A chance to start or continue the next stage of their lives without the burden of the debt accumulated to get there. (3) Providing Opportunity for Additional Savings - Finally, members will receive discounts on major and minor purchases for many of todays most essential items; computers, software, hardware, clothing, travel, etc.
WHAT WE DO AVO helps bridge the gap between higher education and affordability, by providing a viable alternative; to the ever increasing cost of pursuing higher education and the crushing debt of advanced degrees. With Benefits such as Full Tuition Scholarships, Tuition Reduction, Major Partnerships with hundreds of universities and colleges, and much much more, AVO stands to help educate the world without the burden and challenges of crushing debt.
