As we approach the end of National GEAR UP Week for 2015, we’re thrilled with the outcome of your efforts to showcase the people, strategies, and impact of GEAR UP on diverse communities in nearly every corner of the country. We’ve certainly had a blast seeing the joyful faces of GEAR UP, witnessing school-based events in action, and sharing the resounding message that GEAR UP truly works. We are amazed by your creativity and we’re certain that your hard work has paid off.
The stories are still coming in and we plan to showcase them here and on Facebook.
