Since September 1994, the HNU Upward Bound Project has been serving the students of Oakland Unified School District. Upward Bound is an academic outreach program funded by the U.S. Department of Education and is designed to motivate and prepare potential college bound youth to succeed in high school and graduate college. We serve youth between the 9th and 12th grades enrolled at Oakland High School, Castlemont High School, and Fremont High School. Students that are accepted into the program receive project services free of charge. In return, students make a commitment to both their academic education and to the Upward Bound Project.
