Our Mission: To Serve, Support, and Educate
Upward Bound is an intensive college preparatory support project designed to provide low-income, first-generation high school students encouragement, and the essential skills needed to complete high school and earn a postsecondary degree. The program was the first of the TRIO programs created in 1964 as part of the original “War on Poverty” statute, and is funded by a grant from the U.S. Department of Education. This program is based on the campus of Gadsden State Community College in Gadsden, Alabama, and has been in operation since 1973.
