Project Achieve/TRIO

Project Achieve is an integrated TRIO/Student Support Services program dedicated to enhancing your college experience. Eligible students can access counseling; free professional tutoring in Sciences, English, Math, and Computer science/Office Systems; and multicultural events in a friendly, supportive atmosphere of people just like you - dedicated students who want to achieve their goals.

Project Achieve provides the tools to stay in college, assist students to graduate and to transfer to a four-year institution to pursue and successfully complete a bachelor's degree.
