Upward Bound:

  • Posting education, college planning, academic success related articles on UB Facebook page, Closed Facebook Group (UB Pointers)
  • Academic Success and College Planning Webinars – possible feedback or reflection type forms for the students to complete and submit online related to webinar
  • "Virtual College Tours" – sending students via email links to UW System Schools "virtual tours" (UB staff would contact schools for this link or find it on institution website) and having students answer specific questions regarding the college tour
  • Weekly web "challenges" that students could participate in – such as Take a photo or video of yourself practicing a stress management technique presented in a webinar and send it to UB email.  At end of the week, we would post a photo college of all the students who completed the challenge.  I think Boys and Girls Club is doing something similar.  I got this idea last week, but the BG Club got some press for it.
  • Facebook Live Events – e.g. UB Staff demonstrating a stress management technique
  • Upward Bound Book Club – we are searching a novel or book about 1st Gen/LI students in college.  We'd have weekly discussion questions or Zoom Club meetings.
