TRiO is a federal outreach and student service program designed to help low income and first generation students see the benefits and possibilities of a post-secondary education. The program through mentoring, career exploration, college visits, and guidance and direction in the application and financial aid process, helps students enroll and be successful in obtaining a post-secondary education.
