Message from the Director

Welcome to the Upward Bound Vision Quest website! The Upward Bound Vision Quest program is one of the oldest TRIO programs in the state of Minnesota and I look forward to working with our UBVQ students, parents, families, and community partners as we continue the legacy of this great program.

Upward Bound Vision Quest is a federally funded TRIO program that serves high school students who will be the first in their families to earn a 4-year degree. The Upward Bound Vision Quest team is committed to the success of our students and we are excited to support our students in achieving their post-secondary educational goals.

This site will provide you with information about Upward Bound Vision Quest, our mission and goals, our participant application, services participants receive, participant expectations, our academic year calendar, and staff contact information. If you have any additional questions or would like more information about the Upward Bound Vision Quest program, please feel free to contact me. I would be happy to speak to any current or prospective students and families or community partners about our program and how it has been helping low income students succeed for over 40 years.
