to educate themselves throughout their lives"

Our Mission

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

Talent Search also serves high school dropouts by encouraging them to re-enter the educational system and complete their education. The goal of Talent Search is to increase the number of youth who complete high school and enroll in the college or university of their choice.
