Last semester our TRiO Student Ambassadors collaborated with professors on campus and spent countless hours giving presentations and outreaching to Skyline College students.

As a result of their efforts, TRiO currently has 251 active students, who are able to access the multitude of services that TRiO offers, including academic, personal, and career counseling, transfer support, campus visits, access to tutors, and various workshops. The students have also coordinated an upcoming “Day of Service” for their peers in the TRiO Program in conjunction with the San Francisco Food Bank, on April 3, 2015.

The TRiO Ambassadors also worked to create curriculum for future ambassador and leadership training, volunteered with various on-campus events, and participated in a semester-long leadership training.

TRiO serves students who are first-generation, low-income, or have a documented learning/physical disability. The program is still accepting applications for the 2014-2015 school year. Please support us by referring any students who may benefit from TRiO services, while spaces are still available.

Returning students are encouraged to schedule their first counseling appointment for the spring semester as soon as possible.

For more information, please contact Judith Cheung at, call 650-738-4144, or visit in person in Building 5, inside the Learning Center.
