The Department of Outreach Services ensures that the College delivers on its primary mission to serve as a comprehensive community college providing access, instruction, and support services to improve the quality of life for all residents in its service area.
Outreach services involve the extension of Northeast Texas Community College education and services to a culturally diverse population in the various communities served by the College, many of whom would not normally identify with the College. These individuals vary from high school dropouts to public school youth; from families with no history of college to businesses, industries, and financial institutions needing basic skills training. Through these extension services, opportunities are created for both education and training. This department advances quality teaching/learning in all of its programs and services which include the following: Adult Basic Education/Literacy (ABE), General Education Development (GED) Preparation, Communities In Schools, 21st Century ACE Program, Upward Bound, Work-Study Student Mentoring Program, and other grant supported programs and projects designed to meet the needs of a diverse population.
