GEAR UP provides support for families through workshops and job-ready opportunities.
GEAR UP works with families to help them understand the value of college and how to prepare their children for college.
Monthly workshops equip families with the tools to help their children become more successful in middle and high school and prepare for postsecondary education. Workshops are offered throughout the year in English and Spanish and are open to all participants and their families. Topics include financial aid processes, financial literacy, college preparation, and the importance of a rigorous program of study.
"GEAR UP has given me more opportunities to learn about the different colleges, scholarships, and financial literacy about colleges for my child. I also like how it provided tutoring for my child."
