Extended College Tour Update
The students who are planning on attending the ECT have been busy raising the funds they need. They have been doing really well and have been working their tails off. In total they have raised $2,753 and are more than half way to their goal. Woohoo! Please help them reach their goal. Check out the details to the fundraising pasta dinner in the Upcoming Events section below.
On February 3rd we will be hosting Community Meeting! It will be held at the YWCA from 3:00pm-6:00pm. This community meeting will be a little different than normal for a variety of reasons. First, we will be joined by the Hope Coalition thanks to a member of our freshmen class, Jose R. who is a part of the Hope Coalition. They will be coming to host a focus group around equity in education. Second, the president and CEO of YOUInc will be joining us because he has heard so many great things about Youth Academy and he wanted an opportunity to meet everyone! It is going to be a great time, can’t wait to see you there!

Tutoring at Clark
Now is a great time to take advantage of free tutoring at Clark. Just a reminder that tutoring is mandatory for anyone with a 75 or below. Do you have a grade of 75 or below? Don’t worry; be happy because you are required to attend tutoring at Clark to get some extra help to bring that grade up! But where do I go? So glad you asked! Come to Clark University! We will be having tutoring help along with Upward Bound. Tutoring will be held in the Jonas Clark building. On Wednesdays tutoring is located in the following rooms, JC 105 (Computer Lab), JC 206 and JC 218. On Thursdays it is located in rooms JC 102 and Sackler 120. Remember that this is open to ALL of you if you need help with your homework but required of you if you are below a 75 in any class.
