"From the start, Project Success has given me a second family. Project Success has helped me succeed with my education with resources like the workshops that prepare me for classes. My counselor helps guide me in learning about IVCC and is there for me to receive academic, transfer, and personal counseling. Cultural events, tutoring, plus access to studying and computers in Project Success has taught me to work with others and prepare me for my future. Thank you, Project Success!"


In the Fall and Spring semester workshops are offered on a variety of topics. Many of them deal with how to be a more successful student, stress management and financial literacy.
