There have been many successful people like Oprah Winfrey, AC Green, Troy Polamalu, Bernard Harris, and Franklin Diaz-Chang that have needed help along the way. What do these great Americans have in common? They were all participants in the National TRiO programs that support Upward Bound, Student Support Services, and Educational Talent Search.
StudyBuddyToday.com, an online study platform dedicated to social study, is now supporting these federally funded programs. Ray Cabrera, Coordinator of the Upward Bound Program at the University of South Florida and current President of the Florida Association of Educational Opportunity Program Personnel, utilizes StudyBuddyToday.com for over 200 local students. Ray states, “StudyBuddyToday.com is a cost and time effective tool for students to study online with each other using state of the art video collaboration features and tools. I receive analytic metrics about their study habits and performance which provides critical data to the U.S. Department of Education for continued support.”
StudyBuddyToday.com is based in Palm Beach, Florida and founded by Matthew Vinas, a University of Central Florida graduate. He states, “I often found I spent as much time trying to set up study groups as I did studying. Add to that the implied cost of getting around a large campus with parking and gas, I knew there had to be a better way.” Cabrera goes on to say, “StudyBuddyToday.com solves the everyday student concern of budgeting their money and reducing their carbon footprint.”
Don’t be surprised when the next Angela Bassett or Viola Davis, give their next Academy Award speeches and a shout out that “TRiO Works”. TRiO worked for them by helping them achieve early in life, and you will know future generations of noteworthy American’s got a little help from their “buddies” at StudyBuddyToday.com.
