National GEAR UP Week: September 19-23, 2016

Join thousands of students, parents, teachers, partners and college access professionals from across the nation to celebrate GEAR UP and the successes of your hard work and dedication!

National GEAR UP Week is an opportunity for you to raise awareness in your community about the positive impact GEAR UP is having locally.  It's a time to engage all your stakeholders - local, state and federal elected officials, funders, partners, as well as local, state and regional media - to share your program's accomplishments and to get them more involved with your services to students and families. Let's  commemorate your hard work and the progress our students are making towards achieving their life-long dream of going to college!
