Upward Bound is a 100% federally funded program that assists high school students to prepare for successful college entrance. Its purpose is to help students to overcome barriers to higher education through academic instruction, college visits, cultural activities, and other support services. Students make new friends and have fun, all while gaining that extra “push” necessary to attend college and find the right career.
