Upward Bound students honored Earth Day

Rainbow Hillside

A group of more than 40 teenagers honored Earth Day.

On April 26, 2014 students gave back to their communities through service projects in Roseburg, Winston, and Myrtle Creek.

The students were part of Upward Bound, a college access program for high school students who are the first in their families to attend college or are from low-income families.

  • In Myrtle Creek, the group swept and weeded Millsite Park.
  • In Winston, they weeded and removed litter at Civic Wayside Park and River Bend Park.
  • In Roseburg, the students worked in an area of Stewart Park, where they removed blackberry bushes and English Ivy, planted trees in honor of Arbor Day, and spread grass seed.

Upward Bound is a federally funded program that is hosted through Umpqua Community College and serves 60 students at Roseburg, Douglas, and South Umpqua high schools. This is a voluntary program. Students attend monthly Saturday Seminars, team meetings, study groups and a six-week summer academy. Programming includes academic skill development, college searching, career exploration, financial literacy, test preparation, and service learning.
