Upward Bound Participants
We have received incredible feedback from the students. Each student, when they apply, must submit an essay on who they are, what they want to do, and what they will use their device for. We have the absolute privilege to read their essays. Some of them also submitted pictures for us to use! Here are some of the students we are supplying devices to!
"It would help me do my homework and it's easier to help me find the things I will need as I'm working. Also thank you for thinking about what we need and your time."

culture gateway for outsiders who are willing to take the chance to understand that animals have
a connection to many cultures."

Plans to be a criminologist or a detective
Anything helps! There are few ways to help one is to sponsor a laptop for a student (or students) for $50 each. If you want to give more, you can help sponsor a power bank for one of the students without access to power at home for $130 each. If you can't donate money, you can also share this on your Facebook!
