Cultural Enrichment Activities

Here at Upward Bound, we strive to provide our scholars with different opportunities to attend various types of cultural enrichment activities. Scholars have visited numerous museums such as the Bob Bullock Museum, The Contemporary Austin Art Museum at Laguna Gloria and the Jones Center as well.

Along with the different museums, our scholars are able to attend other cultural enrichment activities such SU Native’s Annual Powwow. The Powwow is a great experience that allows different tribes to come together from all over the country to share some of their culture with the public. The SU Powwow enables the public to be educated about the multitude of tribes that attend every year. 

Scholars are also able to attend Southwestern University’s The Roy and Margaret Shilling Lecture Series. The series brings prominent speakers to campus to talk about different topics, speakers such as Jane Goodall.
