Happy National GEAR UP Week!

Today we kick off a week-long celebration of GEAR UP’s successes.  You work hard every day to make sure low-income, minority and first-generation students (and their families) get an equal opportunity to enter and succeed in postsecondary education and beyond.  Now, it’s time to celebrate your accomplishments and be recognized for the progress that we’ve made together because #GEARUPworks!

Join Congressman Chaka Fattah (PA-02) as he kicks off this national celebration to raise awareness about GEAR UP in our communities, and stay tuned for updates from GEAR UP sites across the country!

We will keep you updated here on the blog as well as on Twitter and Facebook. Please feel free to post pictures and Tweet updates to us all week long! Use #GEARUPworks when posting.

I heart GU Campaign

In addition, we launched our ‘I HEART GU’ campaign last week in order to let supports know how they feel simply by sharing a photo. Download the pdf file I love GEAR UP and you can participate just by Tweeting us or posting a photo of anyone holding the ‘I HEART GU’ on our Facebook page.. #GEARUPworks
