Upward Bound is a college preparatory program that assists 165 eligible high school students in graduating from high school, entering college and successfully earning their baccalaureate degree. Upward Bound provides a variety of services to local Long Beach youth who are low-income, at-risk for not graduating high school and typically would be the first generation in their families to attend college.
Services include the following: Summer Residential Program, Mentor Program, Academic Tutoring, College Visitation Trips, Saturday Academy, Service Learning Hours Opportunities, Fundraising, Team Building Activities and Parent Support Group.
Eligible youth must be 17-18 years old, live in Long Beach or Signal Hill, have a determined WIA barrier, and meet WIA income eligibility requirements.
