College Bound provides promising students from under-resourced backgrounds with the academic enrichment, workforce development, social supports, and life skills needed to apply, matriculate, and succeed in four year colleges and careers. In 2006, two school districts approved the CB program, and 36 students placed their hopes for a better future in College Bound. The organization has grown to serve a projected 1,700 students (2012-13 school year) and their families through a variety of programs, including full scale implementation to 9th graders in four partner schools, and a comprehensive program that begins in 10th grade and serves students until they graduate from college. College Bound students come from 39 area high schools and are attending 70 colleges and universities nationwide.
