What is TRiO/Upward Bound?

The goal of the Upward Bound program is to develop in students the motivation and skills necessary to complete high school and enroll in postsecondary education following high school graduation.  In order for the program and student to meet this goal, it is necessary for both the student and parent/guardian to be committed to completing the requirements of the program. 

The activities of the Upward Bound program are all designed to meet the following objectives:

  1. Increase academic performance of program participants

  2. Increase motivation of participants to complete high school and pursue postsecondary education

  3. Provide informative career and educational opportunities for all participants

  4. Increase participation in cultural/educational opportunities beyond those available through high schools

  5. Provide tutoring services, academic advising and counseling to program participants

  6. Provide assistance in completing the application process for admission to a postsecondary institution

Upward Bound requires that students are either first generation or come from modest income households.  Upward Students range from 9-12th grade and have a wide variety academic skill levels.

What will I be doing as a Tutor?

Tutors are paired up with our Academic Advisors and go out to area high schools to work with our students after school. There you will meet with students in a classroom and assist them in completing homework and studying for tests. This is done individually with students, and also in study groups.

Schools that we serve include: Anoka, Blaine, Champlin Park, Coon Rapids, Osseo, Park Center and Spring Lake Park. Tutoring is held Monday, Tuesday, Wednesday and Thursday from 2:45 to 4:45pm.

What math levels would I be required to help tutor?

Most of the students will be in Geometry, Algebra II or Trigonometry.  Every now and then we will have a student who is in Calculus.  Students will have their books and will have examples to help lead the tutor.
