Program Description

ETS is a federally funded program by the Department of Education. It has the goal of helping youth, grades 6th-12th, to complete high school and enroll in an institution of higher education of their choice. ETS provides both group and one-on-one mentor sessions with a pre-college advisor who informs, educates, advises and encourages students on career and college choices.

ETS participants receive educational tutoring, guidance on middle and high school course selection, career counseling, financial aid resources, college and scholarship information. Participants have the opportunity to attend college tours, educational field trips and learn about different career opportunities. We serve eligible students in the Blackfeet, Crow, Flathead and Great Falls target areas.
