What is AVANCE?
AVANCE (A-vahn-ceh), the Spanish word for “advance” or “progress,” is a non-profit organization that has been serving the needs of low-income families since its founding in Texas in 1973. We are dedicated to serving the hardest-to-reach population, and to empowering families with the skills and knowledge they need to break the cycle of poverty.
What does AVANCE do?
We work with families through a proven two-generation, family engagement approach that combines early childhood development and parenting education. The cornerstone of our programs is the Parent-Child Education Program (PCEP), a national model of early intervention that focuses on the welfare of children, families and the community, and that they are all mutually reinforcing.
AVANCE also offers programs that feature additional resources designed to fully prepare students to transition to college and to help adults prepare for the workforce.

Certain host organizations, such as schools, may prohibit volunteers with certain types of criminal convictions from participating in a service project. Accordingly, The Mission Continues is requesting your consent to conduct a criminal background check in the event that your Platoon is engaging in a service project with a host organization that requires a criminal background check. By checking the box below, you authorize The Mission Continues to conduct a criminal background check.
If such a background check is required, it will be completed and used in accordance with applicable law. The Mission Continues does not automatically disqualify persons from Platoons based on criminal convictions. We want as many people as possible to have the opportunity to move forward in their lives through service, at the same time that we seek to protect the communities we serve together.
