California Partnership Initiative Conference

The California Partnership Initiative (CPI) is a project of the California State GEAR UP Program. Since 1999, the California State program has enjoyed working in collaboration with GEAR UP partnership projects to reach our mutual goals:  increasing college and career readiness for low income students and improving the college going culture in schools. CPI was formalized at the National GEAR UP conference in Washington, DC in July 2014. This initiative brings together the 19 active partnership projects and the state grant to strengthen our efforts for ALL students throughout California. The target audience is CA GEAR UP Staff.

Project Goals:

To advance, inform and improve our collective work

To leverage the energy, resources and expertise of GEAR UP in California

To support and sustain GEAR UP efforts statewide
