Time to Gear Up

Gear Up 101

GEAR UP grants are amazing and are clearly the best college readiness program in the nation. However, with big grants come big responsibilities, large teams, and a wealth of tasks that need to be done to meet the grant objectives.

During this training we partner with an experienced GEAR UP director that shares years of knowledge in a matter of hours in an effort to save new grantees a lot of stress, headaches and failures. Learn how to best run your program to ensure all of our students and parents take full advantage of all of the services you provide to them.
