32nd TRIO Day of Service
Students and graduates from Arizona Western College’s TRIO programs will participate in the 2019 AWC TRIO Day of Service on Saturday, March 2nd from 9AM to 2PM to express appreciation to the community for its support of the TRIO programs.
Arizona Western College has been the recipient of three TRIO grants for both pre-college and college level students for over 25 years! Talent Search and Upward Bound are pre-college programs. Talent Search works with almost 600 students per school year and focuses on low-cost, early intervention, working with students deemed to have “college potential” in grades 6 – 12. Students receive information and assistance in applying for college admission, scholarships, and various student financial aid programs. Upward Bound works intensively with a small cohort of high school level students and prepares them for higher education through various enrichment courses. Campus-based UB programs provide students with instruction in literature, composition, mathematics, science, and foreign language during the school year and summer. UB also provides intensive mentoring and support as students prepare for college entrance exams and tackle admissions applications, financial aid, and scholarships. The Student Support Services program (now known as the TRIO KEYS Program) is celebrating its 28th year at AWC. The TRIO KEYS Program serves about 240 students per school year by offering academic support services including course selection, financial aid and scholarship guidance, career exploration, cultural enrichment, personal development and coaching, and assistance with graduation and transferring to vocational or university-level programs.
On Saturday, March 2nd nearly 60 TRIO students and staff will participate in service projects throughout Yuma County. A Welcome, History of TRIO, and Alumni testimonials will be presented from 9:30AM - 10:30AM at the Martin Luther King Jr. Neighborhood Center located at 300 S. 13TH Avenue in Yuma, AZ.
