Upward Bound Projects

Summer Exchange


Parent Corner

Parents play a critical role in Upward Bound. We depend on you for transportation of your child to and from Upward Bound activities, vital documentation for financial aid; and more importantly as a support system for your child.

We believe that the more parental support a student has, the more likely they are to continue to college. Each Upward Bound parent is required to read & sign a parent commitment form detailing the many ways they pledge to support their child in Upward Bound.

Upward Bound staff, in turn, pledge to keep parents current & informed of all Upward Bound activities & serve as a resource to parents in all aspects of their child's education.

The following resources are a great way to gain a better understanding of the college and financial aid process.

If you have specific questions feel free to contact us at (530) 898-5181.
