Mission

Upward Bounds’ mission is to foster student learning and development in Upward Bound high school participants that come from low-income households, are potential first generation college graduates and/or demonstrate academic need, while providing mentorship opportunities for FAU students to develop leadership skills, civic engagement and increased knowledge of university resources.

Our Upward Bound at Florida Atlantic University is designed to help academically talented students from traditionally underserved backgrounds reach their potential by gaining admission to and earning a college degree. We work closely to help students build the academic skills, motivation, and self-confidence necessary for success in college by providing counseling, ACT/SAT preparation, tutoring, cultural activities, and community service experience.
