Our Mission

We are the visionary youth of Upward Bound, and our mission is to graduate from college so we can succeed in a global society. Our dedication to academic rigor, community service, personal growth and leadership will light our path to college readiness. Though we know there will be hardships, our self-respect, friendships, dedication and perseverance will be our tools to overcome barriers and dismantle them for the generations who follow. We are Upward Bound in success. We are Upward Bound in spirit. We are Upward Bound.
