You have a tough job. You want to do more, affect more students, but your resources are limited. Our dedicated GEAR UP team knows you’re the experts, so we’re here to support you. We can help with identifying the academic, counseling, and skills-focused programs they need most. You’re not alone. One step at a time, we’ll move more students forward to graduation.

What’s in it for my students?

  • College and career readiness workshops to complement the work you’re doing and help them realize their potential and opportunities that lie ahead
  • On-site coordinators to take some weight off your shoulders and provide even more assistance
  • Educational, enriching summer camps and programs (i.e., learning to code, how to be a leader) to help retain and build on their knowledge from the year
  • Tutoring to get the grades and test scores needed for graduation
