Upward Bound provides fundamental support to participants in their preparation for college entrance. The program provides opportunities for participants to succeed in pre-college performance and ultimately in higher education pursuits. The goal of Upward Bound is to increase the rates at which participants enroll in and graduate from institutions of postsecondary education.
Upward Bound Project Advisors provide individual and group advisement counseling and guidance. Students are involved in informational workshops during the bi-monthly visits to their schools and the summer six week component. The informational workshops provide motivation and reinforcement on the academic skills necessary for secondary and post-secondary education success.
