SAVE Your Local Educational Opportunity Center
This petition had 3,516 supporters
The Trump Administration is working to eliminate TRIO Educational Opportunity Center (EOC) programs that support adults in completing and furthering their education and career goals. In 2016, EOC programs assisted and supported more than 225,000 low-income adult learners who would be the first people in their families to enroll in college to complete and further their education through career and technical education programs, community college and four-year institutions. An increasing number of adult students are furthering their education as a way of moving out of low-wage and dead-end employment. EOC helps low-wage and unemployed Americans move into higher paying jobs and contribute more revenue to the local economy. Higher wages mean more taxes revenue and greater local spending power. If EOC programs disappear, this is what adult learners and their families will lose:
● GED and High School Equivalency Support and Completion
● Academic Advising
● Personal Counseling
● Career and Technical Workshops
● Financial Aid Assistance
● Admissions Assistance
● Financial Literacy
● Connections to Disability Services
● Veterans Support
● Supporting Homeless and Foster Youth
● Scholarship Awareness and Outreach
