Get Involved

A program like Upward Bound requires the involvement of many diverse participants in order to be successful. The staff of Upward Bound and the program’s students rely heavily on volunteers and the involvement of the greater community. Alumni can also get involved in many ways – which usually starts with filling out our alumni update form. If you are interested in becoming involved or associated with Upward Bound at Michigan State University in any capacity, please explore our Employment Opportunities, Volunteer Opportunities, and Community Giving pages. If you do not find what you are looking for, please contact our Office to discuss a potential role that you can be a part of within the Upward Bound program.
