WHO WE ARE
TN TRiO is a non-profit educational organization dedicated to helping disadvantaged students of all ages. Our members serve students are all ages, from middle school age to high school age, to college-age, and adults. Our students typically come from lower-income households where no one had previously completed a college degree. Our commitment is simple: to help students who normally wouldn't achieve great things through education do just that. After we serve our students they are successful individuals who make a difference in their communities. We are proud to serve each student and are eager to serve many more.
TN TRiO members are employed through the federally funded TRIO programs: Talent Search, Upward Bound, Veteran's Upward Bound, Upward Bound Math & Science, Student Support Services, Education Opportunity Centers, Ronald E. McNair Scholars Program or other educational opportunity programs like GEAR-UP.
The purpose of the TN TRiO, is to bring together individuals who have an active interest in or who are professionally involved in broadening accessibility to and success in formal post-secondary education.
