Our Approach

Up3 augments the services of the foster care system by pairing traditional academic support with essential confidence building, motivation and life-skills development through participation in extra-curricular activities.

Nurturing passion to unlock potential

We want foster youth to understand and experience their personal power and potential as they explore their passion

Traditional Academic Support

Each Up3 youth will be provided with the tools needed to succeed academically. Up3 provides financial support for areas including tuition, supplies, and tutoring.

Passion-Brand Curriculum

Each Up3 youth will receive a personalized  program focusing on a particular interest that's catered to their learning style and pacing.

Passion Identification

Although many youth know what interests them, Up3 offers the chance to explore various hobbies to decide what they might want to learn more about.


Each Up3 youth will be paired with a mentor who will support them with learning opportunities related to their passions, critical life skills, and overall encouragement


Efforts to make extracurricular participation a standard aspect of foster youth developmental experience are essential for their educational well-being
