The Educational Opportunity Center can help you get started by providing you all of the information you need to pursue your educational goals! And the best part - our services won't cost you a penny! EOC is a FREE program ECTC offers that is 100% funded by the U.S. Department of Education to provide assistance to first generation and low-income individuals as well as military connected persons who desire a post-secondary education.
The Educational Opportunity Center provides outreach services to adults and high school students in 10 Central Kentucky counties. A counselor visits each county weekly, assisting any eligible person who resides in those counties to enroll in a GED programs (if they do not have a high school diploma) OR college and provide access to the center's other services.
Two-thirds of participants in the Educational Opportunity Center must have a low income and be first generation (meaning neither parent graduated from a four-year college). Individuals who do not meet these criteria are encouraged to apply as well, especially those who come from veteran and military-connected families!
More education can mean more job opportunities, a faster climb up the career ladder and a larger paycheck. Regardless of your age, it's never too late to complete the degree or training you've always wanted.
