The University of Maine System is requiring all new positions, including summer jobs, be approved and hired through the Hire Touch System. As a result, the Upward Bound program will accept applications through this portal but then will require finalists who are not college students to complete the Hire Touch process. We will discuss this process with candidates selected for an interview. 

Tentative Summer 2024 Dates 

  • Staff Training Week – June 17th – June 21st
  • Summer Program – June 23rd – July 26th


Applicants must have completed at least three years of college and currently be in good academic standing. Preference will be given to candidates who have:

  • Experience as a TA, tutor, residential advisor or camp counselor
  • Experience working with low-income, first-generation-to-college students
  • Valid Driver’s License and meet approval by the UMaine Motorpool
  • TRIO background
