Welcome, UB Volunteers! We're looking for tutors and mentors to help our students achieve their academic, personal, and professional goals. Interested volunteers should fill out a background check form and email it to, Abigail Ponce, our Project Coordinator. This must be turned in PRIOR to volunteering. Volunteers should also take the time to review our Volunteer Handbook, paying special attention to our rules about communication and student boundaries. Lastly, all volunteers must review our training procedures and provide an online signature showing that they have familiarized themselves with these rules. Click here to go to this page. Put "0" under C#, and list the program/activity as "Upward Bound" and the program organizer as "Rebecca Parker." Date range should reflect the dates that you plan to volunteer, so if you plan to be available for only the Spring Semester, you could put 1/15 through 5/31.
Thanks to Ball State Student Voluntary Services and the Black Student Association for their commitment to Upward Bound. Last year volunteers donated over 422 hours!
