TRIO ETS is a program that motivates and supports students to graduate from high school and go to the college of their choice.  We focus on low-income and potential first generation students, but all students are encouraged to submit an application. There are TRIO programs located at colleges and universities across the country, so once you are in TRIO, you are always in TRIO!

Who do we serve?

We serve approximately 600 students in middle and high school in San Lorenzo and Hayward.
