Gear Up Grant

​Gear Up is a collective of educational and social justice leaders who are dedicated to ensuring that ALL students have equitable access to a quality education.

The Gaining Early Awareness and Readiness for Undergraduate Programs (GEAR UP) is a federally funded initiative administered by the United States Department of Education.  Since 1999, the California GEAR UP Program has been administered by the University of California with a charge to lead systemic reform through a programmatic focus on enhancing the organizational capacity of middle schools to prepare ALL students for success after high school.  The California GEAR UP Program serves primarily the adults who impact secondary school students: faculty, counselors, administrators, and families.
