Developing Lifelong Learners
The TRIO Upward Bound program equips students with the skills and motivation necessary to complete high school and enter postsecondary education. The Center also serves DACA and undocumented students as part of its CIDream initiative underwritten through private sponsorships. Additional programs include Spectrum Digital Education, Grow with Google, Ford Driving Dreams and Nucleus Robotics and Entrepreneurship courses.
Upward Bound Channel Islands (UBCI) is the best resource I ever had in high school. UBCI helped me tremendously throughout my high school journey by offering tutoring, workshops, and supporting me with my academics. I was able to maintain all A's thanks to UBCI's tutoring and I received so much support during challenging times.
LNESC Oxnard and the Upward Bound Channel Islands (UBCI) Program have been a pivotal factor to my success in high school, my acceptance into my dream university with scholarships accumulating to a full-ride, and my current success as an undergraduate sophomore at one of the top universities in the world (UC Berkeley).
UBCI was one of the main reasons I even applied to college. I was extremely overwhelmed and unmotivated due to the pandemic and being quarantined. If it were not for UBCI and their support, I wouldn’t have applied. UBCI reached out consistently and checked in on us, offering workshops on how to apply to UCs and CSUs.
