TRIO students qualify for free one-on-one and group tutoring sessions on a schedule that works for you.

Summer Bridge Program

Our Summer Bridge program provides new students and their families with an opportunity to learn more about college. This program emphasizes resources available to students, understanding challenges that college students face, and developing a sense of community and support.

Lending Program

With the assistance of ASWVC, TRIO SSS provides a collection of textbooks, calculators, and laptops that are available for student use. Textbooks and calculators may be borrowed for the entire quarter free of charge to TRIO SSS students. Laptops can be checked out for one week at a time. 

Financial Literacy

Our students receive support to develop financial management skills through one-on-one session and workshops. We help students seek out and find scholarship opportunities, balance their budget, and borrow money responsibly. We can also help students with their FAFSA.

Career Planning

TRIO SSS students gain access to internships, job shadows, and leadership opportunities. We are here to help you find the various personality and career placement tools that WVC and the community have to offer. We host career development workshops and are available to meet for one-on-one discussions with students about choosing a career goal. 

Cultural Enrichment

We offer a number of social and cultural activities to help students make the most out of their college experience.
