Now Hiring For Summer 2024: Resident Advisor, Resident Director, Program Assistant, and Summer Teacher
Upcoming Monday Night Session: Feb. 26
Upward Bound is a federally funded grant program that provides support to high school participants in their preparation for college entrance. The program provides opportunities for participants to succeed in their precollege performance and ultimately in their higher education pursuits.
The Upward Bound program serves high school aged students who meet income requirements and/or are from a household in which neither parent has a Bachelor-level degree.
The goal of Upward Bound is to increase the rate at which participants complete secondary education; enroll in and graduate from institutions of post-secondary education.
Upward Bound programs provide academic instruction (mathematics, laboratory sciences, composition, literature, & foreign languages), tutoring, counseling, mentoring, cultural enrichment activities, work-study programs, and services designed to improve the financial and economic literacy of students.
