TRIO Upward Bound

The availability of high-quality education is most often based on zip code and family income level. Wrong zip code or income level and the number of educational options available take a deep dive. At the Endeleo Institute, we believe one of the many facets of transforming a community is by increasing the number of free services available to the under-served. Providing free, high-quality educational enrichment programs is an investment in the youth of the community. The interest payout looks like lower crime rates, higher per capita income, and increased homeownership.

Awarded in September 2017, the Upward Bound Project Grant affords us the opportunity to provide a variety of services and resources to 60 high school students per school year. We specifically target low-income, potentially first-generation college-bound students attending Christian Fenger Academy High School located in the Roseland neighborhood.  Fenger Academy students are greatly impacted by the unaddressed social and economic conditions of our country.  These conditions pose serious problems for low-income, potentially first-generation college students such as higher dropout rates, lower graduation and college-going rates.
