Mark your calendar for the nation’s largest celebration of all things GEAR UP! National GEAR UP Week will occur September 23–27, 2024.
Join thousands of students, parents, teachers, partners, and college access professionals nationwide to celebrate GEAR UP and 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, and 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.
