The focus of Upward Bound is to provide encouragement,
direction and support to eligible high school students so that
they may be able to realize their dream of attending college after
The program accomplishes this through
four major components:
Two-hour after school tutorials are held once
a week at each high school site.
All day Saturday Sessions are held once a month
at West Hills College Coalinga.
A six-week residential summer component is held
on campus at West Hills College Coalinga.
Recreational, educational, cultural and inspirational
fieldtrips throughout California.
During each of these components,
the program offers academic tutoring, personal, educational and financial
aid counseling, field trips to colleges and universities, as well
as motivational guest speakers.
