The Community Teen Coalition Upward Bound program serves 60 participants at Banneker and Griffin High School. In addition to the intensive preparatory program, students participate in ongoing College and Career Day workshops where they hear from several professionals from different industries and participate in college fairs. Rising seniors have an opportunity to do paid internships during their final UB summer program. Students participate in both the academic year and summer components upon entry to the program until high school graduation.  All program services are free and students receive a small stipend for their participation.
