Program Description

TRIO Talent Search enhances academic skills to help middle and high school students with achieving the goal of going to college by helping to prepare, apply, pay and enroll into college. For over 19 years TRIO Talent Search has supported students who reside in Cumberland, Hoke, and Robeson counties with achieving the dream of going to college.

As a leader in the college access industry, we have a strong track record of having positive effects on helping students from low-income and first-generation families to complete high school and enroll into college. Our dedicated team travels to local target schools to work with students one-on-one and in small groups to provide career and college readiness support. There is no cost for any services provided by our program.
