Welcome to the Maine Educational Opportunity Center Website!

Welcome to the Maine Educational Opportunity Center Website. We are a federally funded program that works with adults to assist them in going on to college. This website was built to provide some basic information about the services we provide, and how to access them.

New Feature: If you would like to register yourself for a MEOC workshop, go to the workshop schedules sectionand click on the workshop you would like to attend. If you have any questions, please call 1-800-281-3703.

New Gerontology Program at York County Community College

This fall, YCCC is introducing a new Gerontology program, which offers both a certificate and Associates degree. This program will provides training that prepares students for direct service careers working with elderly populations, such as in senior citizen homes or retirement communities. As an added bonus, depending on elective choices, this is a program that can be completed almost completely online.

For more information, a pdf can be found here, or go to the YCCC website.
