Workshops and Events

In collaboration with EOPS, MESA, and STEM, TRIO provides workshops to give students opportunities to overcome many academic and personal obstacles. Topics range from Setting Academic Goals to Overcoming Test Anxiety.


TRIO has a number of online workshop opportunities in the ACCESS Angel Group. In addition to the Scholarship Essay Writing Workshop and the New Student Orientation, there are more than 20 online workshops related to Financial Literacy, Academic & Career Exploration, Personal Management, Reading & Writing Strategies, and Learning to Learn. Here you will also find other useful information and a place to ask questions or share resources with your fellow students.

* The "Mission College ACCESS Orientation Group" and these workshops are ONLY available to registered TRIO students. If you are an enrolled TRIO student and cannot locate the Angel ACCESS Group, please tell a TRIO staff member. If you are not a TRIO member, please go to the Application page to see if you qualify.
