"Hello, my name is Alexia and I have been in GEAR UP for 4 years now. Every year I've had so much help from my GEAR UP counselors with scholarships, FAFSA, and any college questions that I've had. I feel that being in this club has been very beneficial for me because it has been so much easier applying for colleges by getting direct help. I would recommend this program to everyone because all aspects of it are amazing!"
