The Educational Opportunity Center 

The Educational Opportunity Center is a program designed to assist adults with information about educational and career opportunities in Hinds, Madison, Leake, Warren and Yazoo counties. The Educational Opportunity Center helps qualified adults who desire to enter or continue a program of postsecondary education by providing information on admission requirements and available financial aid. In conjunction with schools, agencies, and organizations in the target area, this program develops, publicizes and implements strategies that are designed to increase the probability of dropouts being re-admitted to secondary postsecondary school. During phase one, the Educational Opportunity Center will offer all services virtually from September 2020 through December 2020. Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, phase two face-to-face instruction will be determined in January 2021.
