We solicit opportunities for collaboration that foster meaningful and deep interactions
The programmatic focus of the California GEAR UP Program is to develop and sustain the capacity of feeder sets of middle and high schools to prepare all students for higher education through a systemic network of support for the adults who influence secondary school students.
