Impact

Several studies have been conducted on the effectiveness of AVANCE programming over the last 30 years. Outcomes demonstrate that our Parent-Child Education Program (PCEP) increases parenting knowledge, improves parent-child interactions, increases parent empowerment, and promotes social connectedness. Studies have also found that PCEP promotes positive early academic outcomes for children, including increased school-readiness
and better attendance.

What people say about us.

AVANCE is the difference between before and now. It has given me the tools to better understand my daughter's needs and it showed me how to be a better mother.

Evidence and Investigations

There are many studies have been conducted to examine the impact of AVANCE programs, including randomized control trials, longitudinal studies, and a quasi-experimental study. Overall, the studies show the two-gen impact of our programming:

parents participate PCEP

Parents who participate in PCEP provide more educationally stimulating home environments for their infants, have more positive attitudes towards childrearing and their role as teachers of their children, and have better parenting skills compared to non-PCEP parents.

Parent PCEP

Ten years after participation PCEP parents had experienced incredible increases in educational attainment, full-time employment and homeownership

children participate PCEP

Children who participate in PCEP they have better attendance and better reading outcomes than children who did not participate in PCEP.

Children in PCEP

Children who participated in PCEP were more likely to attend pre-K, be school-ready at kindergarten entry, and have better attendance than a comparison group of demographically similar students
