We serve first-generation, low-income students and families that have historically benefited from Upward Bound and have extended our reach to make an impact beyond the “college-bound” population.
We meet anyone where they are and help them get where they want to go.
We measure our success in terms of the number of personal and professional connections we facilitate and the quality of the outcomes that arise from those connections.

Some 170 young people from across Central Virginia gathered recently in Charlottesville for a day of activities focused on building community, resolving conflict and reducing the potential for violence. The “Tweens & Teens Summit” was part of a series of weekend events in November sponsored by the Central Virginia Listening & Learning Exchange (CVLLE), a student-led initiative at UVA’s Frank Batten School of Leadership and Public Policy. 

Designed as a guiding light for those supporting adolescents, Portrait of a Thriving Youth is a dynamic picture of what youth need to flourish.
