The CUUB Directors visit all twelve of CUUB's partner high schools twice per semester during the Academic Year. The first of the fall visits is geared toward recruiting eligible participants and spreading the word about what CUUB can offer. And the final visit is typically centered on preparing new students for their upcoming summer with CUUB.
But in between, CUUB is proud to offer Community Workshops, which are free and open to any interested students and families, not just CUUB students or CUUB-eligible students. These workshops cover a range of topics under the umbrella of college-prep. In the past, we have held workshops on personal statement writing, indigenizing higher education, and financial literacy, but we are always expanding our programming and interested in responding to the specific needs of the communities we visit! Each time we visit, we will have feedback forms that will allow you to tell us what topic you'd like us to cover, and we can use this feedback to inform our upcoming Community Workshop programming.
While CUUB certainly relies on its own experience in the world of college prep to generate the content for our Community Workshops, we are extremely grateful to our partners and colleagues in higher education who have helped us develop this content and make it increasingly effective.
Our longtime partners at the American Indian College Fund often work with us to work on content development and programming that can most effectively reach and empower our indigenuous communities. Many of our students go on to apply for the College Fund's scholarship programs.
CUUB has also participated in training and curriculum development seminars hosted by the Transition to College program by Families in Schools, an organization dedicated to involving parents and communities in the future academic successes of students.
CUUB is constantly expanding itself by forming more partnerships, both on CU Boulder's campus and in the national higher education community. We are committed to providing our students and communities with the most effective content and support possible for a successful secondary & postseconary experience.
