LSSC’s Educational Opportunity Programs hosts the federal TRIO Talent Search program to promote success in high school, enrollment in a college or university, and postsecondary degree attainment. The Talent Search program increases the success rates of middle and high school students from disadvantaged backgrounds through tutoring, career development, college assistance, financial assistance, and culturally-enriching field trips.

The Talent Search program identifies and assists individuals from underrepresented backgrounds who have the potential to succeed in higher education. The program provides academic, career, and financial counseling to its middle school and high school participants encouraging them to graduate from high school and continue on to and complete their postsecondary education.
