“Upward Bound has not only helped me in classes that I have been struggling with it has also been a way for me to make friends both in my school and connect with other schools around mine. I have been able to get ahead in my classes that I am currently taking and classes I will take in the next year. This program has helped me prepare for college and life after high school.”
