The goal of the Upward Bound program is to help high school students gain access to educational opportunities and training beyond high school. Upward Bound is a year-round program that is comprised of an academic year component and a summer residential component. The summer session is hosted at Humboldt State University in late June through July. The focus is to help participants be academically successful in high school while preparing for college. The Academic year component includes seminars, workshops, tutoring, and academic advising. Students are selected to participate in Upward Bound based on limited family income, first generation college-bound status, a demonstrated need for services and high potential to succeed. The program is designed to motivate and guide freshman and sophomore students from Arcata, Hayfork, Hoopa, Southern Trinity, South Fork, and Trinity high schools.
