The National Association of Veterans Upward Bound Project Personnel (NAVUBPP) is the professional association for Veterans Upward Bound staff personnel. Veterans Upward Bound is an educational and skills program designed specifically to serve the needs of today's military veterans. Our mission is to provide VUB participants with the educational opportunities they need to be successful. Most of our program participants are non-traditional college students who face special challenges in re-entering the college environment.
Veterans Upward Bound provides a comprehensive program of support services to improve both academic and motivational skills. Services are available for college preparation and GED completion. Specific services include developmental courses to improve basic skills; specialized advising for those interested in careers in science, math and technology; tutoring; career counseling and advisement; college orientation; assistance with admissions, financial aid, and GI Bill applications; and referrals to other agencies providing services to veterans.
Forty-one Veterans Upward Bound projects are currently funded in the United States and Puerto Rico. Approximately 5,000 veterans are served annually.
