Purpose

The goal of the Educational Opportunity Center program is to provide counseling to promote post-secondary education in communities with large populations of low-income, first-generation adults who are often unaware of educational and career opportunities.

Educational counselors assist eligible adults with selecting a post-secondary institution or training program suited to their interests. Counselors also assist clients with the completion of admissions and financial aid applications, scholarship searches, and defaulted student loans. The EOC program provides academic advising and workshops on topics such as: study skills, scholarships, financial aid, financial literacy and career exploration.
