About Us

The National Association of Veterans Upward Bound (NAVUB) is the professional association for Veterans Upward Bound (VUB) staff personnel. Veterans Upward Bound projects, supported by NAVUB, are dedicated to fully developing the personal potential of all U.S. military veterans, just as NAVUB is dedicated to fully developing professional staff members who work with VUB's veterans. VUB staff and instructors assist veterans by developing, improving, and extending educational access and opportunities to eligible veterans through academic needs assessment, instruction, enrichment, and other academic support activities. Veterans Upward Bound projects are funded by the U. S. Department of Education and serve eligible veterans across the nation. Communication and cooperative effort with schools, communities, agencies and other organizations at the local, state, regional, and national level are among the other primary functions of NAVUB, which also seeks to improve services and educational opportunities for veterans by serving as a forum for exchange of knowledge and ideas. NAVUB provides for continuing professional development of VUB staff members, and serves as a network of communication for information related to quality delivery of veterans' services. NAVUB also encourages professional research and publication, as well as cooperative effort with other organizations committed to serving veterans and addressing veterans' issues. Fifty-one Veterans Upward Bound projects are currently funded across the U.S., including Puerto Rico. An annual conference with emphasis on professional development of individual members and VUB project staff is the Association's highlight activity each year.
