Marie Felan Continues as Executive Director

We are so thrilled to announce that Marie Felan will be continuing as Executive  Director of AVANCE-Austin. As you may be aware, AVANCE National Headquarters invited Marie to join the National team in San Antonio, and she gave this serious consideration in her determination to help AVANCE succeed across the United States.
Ultimately, however, Marie felt she needed to continue to direct the amazing progress we have made here in Austin. She felt she could not walk away from stewarding the crucial growth she has helped to bring about in her under two-year tenure to date. After all, AVANCE-Austin:
  • Had the largest graduating class of children and parents this program year and expect growth in our upcoming new program year starting in September.
  • Secured a permanent facility and expanded our early childhood classrooms from 2 to 4 classes and added high quality home education programming.
  • Strengthened our core by expanding our Board of Directors to 16 dedicated, professionals who are committed to an ambitious three-year strategic plan that will see AVANCE double its capacity by 2020.

AVANCE-Austin is the only organization of its kind. Our success rate and return on the dollar is extraordinary: a one-time investment of just $4,500 breaks an entire family out of poverty for generations to come. Simply put, AVANCE changes everything.
