Upward Bound Event Flyers and Sign Ups


You can find flyers and the links to sign up for our upcoming activities below. You must sign up for an event at least two days before the day the event is taking place.  Many events have a limit to the number of students that can attend, so the earlier you sign up the better.  If you sign up and all spots have already been filled, you will be placed on a waiting list.
