Supported by United Way of Meriden & Wallingford

Through the generous support of the United Way of Meriden/ Wallingford, Upward Bound is a free program that helps students in grades 4-12 grow & develop in a positive environment with positive role models.

Incorporating the Y philosophy of developing the spirit, mind, and body, youth are challenged to reach past their limitations with decision-making opportunities, recreational activities, and positive self-expression.  Our hope is that these youth will grow and learn about themselves in a multitude of aspects in their lives. In understanding themselves more completely, they are better equipped when faced with daily challenges. Upward Bound is supported by the United Way, Rotary Foundation, Ion Bank and the Liberty Bank Foundation.
