Our Upward Bound Program is a host site for Commonwealth Corps. The Commonwealth Corps is a state-funded program administered by the Massachusetts Service Alliance.
The mission of the Commonwealth Corps is to engage Massachusetts residents of all ages and backgrounds in direct service to rebuild communities and address unmet community needs.
Our members, Ciara Cosby and Luke McKinnon, are making a huge difference in our program. They are providing tutoring, mentoring, academic support, college visits, community service opportunities, college awareness activities, homework help, and enrichment classes to our students and to students who are not able to participate in the Upward Bound Program.
They are recruiting volunteers, developing and implementing a book donation project that will benefit the program for many years, creating materials for social media and publications, developing new recruitment materials, and increasing our capacity in many other ways.
