"GEAR UP is more than just an affirmative action program that focuses on Academics. GEAR UP, for me, has been a program of endless support and encouragement. I have long appreciated my time with GEAR UP since I joined the organization my junior year of High School. GEAR UP has been a safe space where I could literally vent about anything (school or non-school related). This organization has helped me knock on new doors and reach new heights in terms of my education. I will forever be thankful to GEAR UP!!"
