The UpLearn program seeks to empower individuals on the move by facilitating access to higher education. In collaboration with Southern New Hampshire University (SNHU), the program offers competency-based degrees that blend online and in-person learning. To further support our learners, UpLearn provides a suite of wraparound services, including academic advisory services, on-site tutors, life skills training, and psychosocial support. This comprehensive approach builds upon students’ strengths while also providing critical support services to address the unique challenges facing displaced learners.
UpLearn further empowers students through our Employment Access program, which boosts their job readiness and improves employment prospects. Since 2018, UpLearn has successfully graduated over 150 students with both associate’s and bachelor’s degrees. Our graduates have gone on to pursue advanced education, secure employment, and assume leadership roles within their communities.
