Student Programs

Liberty Partnerships Program provides academic, cultural and social emotional learning opportunities in person at our partner school locations, virtually and at UB’s South Campus. 

I Can! Summer Residential Program

Each summer, the Liberty Partnerships Program offers students in grades 5 through 9 the opportunity to join the I Can! summer residential college access program. Through the program, students substantially increase their understanding of the college research process, form invaluable relationships with college students, faculty and staff, and are positioned to be successful in college.

What to expect.

  • 3-day, 2-night stay in campus residence halls.
  • Meals in our campus dining halls.
  • Mock college classes taught by UB professors.
  • Mentoring from UB athletes.
  • Fun activities to strengthen college knowledge.
  • Opportunities for parents to learn about college, alongside their students, while visiting the campus.

How to apply.

Students must complete the I Can! application packet. Call us at 716-829-5678 or email to receive a packet.

STEM Program

LPP offers extended learning opportunities throughout the summer. Programs such as Engineering for Kids offer students a fun way to spend their summer, while introducing them to STEM fields in a college environment. 

College Access

Although graduating high school is a priority, preparing our students for life after graduation is just as important. We offer our students opportunities for career exploration, extensive college searches, financial aid and workforce development opportunities.

In-School Support

LPP utilizes a push-in model where services are delivered within our partner schools during class time. We use research-based curriculum that has been shown to improve overall student success.

Wellness and Resilience Program

A strategic approach to directly motivate our students within our partner schools to be prepared and confident while focusing on statewide testing. The program offers an opportunity to end the school year on a high note, while taking responsibility for individual and student performance regarding grades and class assignments. We bring in the best motivational speakers to actively engage our students with a goal of success in mind.

Having a teenage boy and seeing him want to do something that’s actually beneficial and seeing it to the end is a huge impact in itself! I never once had to encourage, remind or nag him to do anything when it came to Liberty Partnerships.

I appreciate that there are positive programs in our community that are focused on the success of my children. As a working mother, I sometimes feel that although I am a huge influence in their lives, they need other role models besides me. You all are showing them positivity that will have a major effect on their future.
