“Kids don’t care how much you know until they know how much you care.”

WHAT THE STUDENTS SAY...

“Not only have I made many great friends, but I have learned a lot about myself and what I can do through the program. The skills I have obtained throughout the years are some that I will always carry with me.” ~ Kirsten Johnson’07

Upbeat

Berlin Upbeat is a comprehensive school and community-based character development and leadership training program.  Our goal is to encourage the youth of Berlin to develop sound decision making skills and to provide opportunities for positive community involvement and service.  The Upbeat Program began with a federal grant in 1988.

WHO IS UPBEAT?

  • Students
  • School staff, teachers and administrators
  • Parents
  • Police
  • Community

WHY DOES UPBEAT WORK?

Upbeat works because of its enormous appeal to its target groups - school-age children, parents, teachers/administrators, police officers, town officials and Berlin residents. The program offers something that each group values as fun and important.

FUNDING

The Upbeat Program is funded solely through grants, financial donations, fund raisers, gifts and donations of goods and services by the town, school system, service groups and clubs, the local business community and citizens.
