Upward Bound is organized as a partnership between Rutgers University - Newark and the East Orange School District, and is funded through a grant by the United States Department of Education.

The program’s goal is to provide fundamental support to participants in their preparation for success in secondary and post-secondary education. Scholars of the program participate in a year-long program (two Saturdays per month during the academic year and summer school for six-weeks during the summer).

Volunteer tutors should be proficient in one of the following:

S cience (Biology, Chemistry, Physics)
T echnology
E nginerring
M athematics (Pre-Algebra, Algebra I and II, Geometry)

Former volunteer experience in tutoring is necessary to being a susccessful volunteer at this opporunity and p revious exposure to low-income, first -generation youth is highly recommended.

Volunteers are expected to help students learn independently. Volunteers are not expected to provide answers, but rather they should provide the necessary steps that students can use to find their own answers.
