Youth Education

MDC operates two TRiO Education programs, both of which help low-income, first-generation students graduate high school and enroll in college. TRiO Talent Search (TS) supports students in grades 6-12 as they learn about college, financial aid, and career opportunities through after school information sessions. TRiO Upward Bound serves high school students with mentoring, information about college, financial aid, and career opportunities.
