TRIO is a federally funded pre-college/college access program. We have 2 versions connected with Portland State University, Upward Bound, which works as a preparation based program in grades 9-12 and Educational Talent Search, which works as information based program in grades 6-12. Currently we have 108 students in Upward Bound and over 675 in talent search. We are contracted to work at certain schools in PPS. Our target schools are: Roosevelt, Jefferson, Madison, and Franklin high schools along with George, Lane, Jason Lee, Boise middle schools.
At the middle schools I work with students to deliver college/career exploration. I do this by providing in-class workshops (mainly in the AVID Class), field trips, and career/college presentations, and SUN class. Students who choose to participate in our program do need to fill out an application.
