TRIO Day » What is TRIO Day?
According to the 1986 Congressional resolution, National TRIO Day is meant to focus the nation's "attention on the needs of disadvantaged young people and adults aspiring to improve their lives, to the necessary investment if they are to become contributing citizens of the country, and to the talent which will be wasted if that investment is not made."
TRIO Day has been proclaimed a National Day of Service
. We encourage programs to perform some sort of community service-as a way for TRIO to give back to their community and say thank you for its support.
Please let the Council for Opportunity in Education know about your TRIO Day celebration by completing the 2013 National TRIO Day Survey
(one per institution/organization TRIO Day celebration).
TRIO Day is the last Saturday of February. This year, TRIO Day will be held on February 23, 2013
, but remember events do not need to be limited to that day.
