UPWARD BOUND NIGHT OF VOLUNTEERISM
June 18 6 PM – 8 PM (Rain Date June 25)
On this special night a group of approximately 60 volunteers and mentors gather at the Fort for an evening of volunteerism.
“Upward Bound provides fundamental support to participants in their preparation for college entrance. The program provides opportunities for participants to succeed in their precollege performance and ultimately in their higher education pursuits. Upward Bound serves: high school students from low-income families; and high school students from families in which neither parent holds a bachelor’s degree. The goal of Upward Bound is to increase the rate at which participants complete secondary education and enroll in and graduate from institutions of postsecondary education.” 1
