National TRIO Alumni Association

National TRIO Alumni Association NTAA's goal is to create a network of individuals whose lives have been transformed by a TRIO program (Talent Search, Upward Bound, EOC, SSS & McNair)
(38)

The NTAA hopes that each individual graduating from college with the assistance of a TRIO program will look to the National TRIO Alumni Association as a way to give back to succeeding generations of low-income, first-generation and disabled students. We strive to engage Alumni in welcoming new graduates of TRIO programs, and facilitating their success in local community and professional organizations. Local Alumni Chapters will provide the organizational infrastructure in communities throughout the country to facilitate these goals.

Mission: The mission of the National TRIO Alumni Association is to promote the critical value of TRIO programs by (1) providing career and networking opportunities for graduates of TRIO Programs, (2) mobilizing Alumni so that their talents can expand mentoring, (3) providing career information and other supports available to low-income, first-generation and disabled students particularly those currently enrolled in TRIO, and (4) to advocate for increased public support for expanded college opportunity for low-income, first-generation students and those with disabilities within the United States.

General information

The National TRIO Alumni Association activates communities of heroes to inspire even the most disadvantaged American to experience transformation through higher education. Since 1965, students have been graduating from college because their country invested in their futures – through grants, loans and work-study programs. But at the same time, America made another key decision: to invest in the people and programs that would help low-income and first-generation students to: • Learn about, • Aspire to, • Prepare for, • Enroll and • Graduate from College.
