The Upward Bound program provides opportunities for participants to succeed in their precollege performance and ultimately in their higher education pursuits.
Upward Bound Occidental College Mission:
The Occidental College Upward Bound Program assists low income, disconnected youth, and first generation students in the central and northeastern sections of Los Angeles. Program participants will succeed in secondary education completion and post-secondary matriculation, retention, and completion through one-on-one academic advisement, weekly academic enrichment services and workshops, and summer residential experience. The Upward Bound Department recruits and identifies high school students who have the potential to go to College, and have yet to demonstrate it.
