The Georgia Association of Special Programs Personnel  (GASPP) or Georgia TRiO, founded in 1981, is a non- profit organization, made up of educators, policymakers, professionals in the private sector and other individuals committed to ensuring that secondary and post-secondary educational opportunities are appropriate and accessible to students from disadvantaged backgrounds.

 

GASPP is an organization with over 150 professional members committed to helping students succeed through the TRIO programs.  The Georgia TRIO programs serve approximately 20,000 students and adults statewide.  We receive $12,000,000 annually in federal funds from the US Department of Education to assist us with our goals.  Our students are all ages--from middle school to adults. They typically come from lower income households where no one has obtained a college degree. Our commitment is simple: to help students achieve great things through education. We are proud to serve each student and are eager to serve many more.
