Mission Statement

The GEAR UP Project aims to increase college participation of Washington State underrepresented students from low-income areas by developing and providing unique outreach services linking UW, K-12, and other colleges.

Description

Every summer, the UW will bring 1,000 students from state partnership projects to campus for intensive preparation in career and college awareness. Having a sucessful institute will depend on support from: - UW staff and community members to provide job shadowing and career mentoring. - Seattle business and community representatives to provide career awarness and sponsor events. - UW faculty members to teach courses and mentor students. - UW students to lead tours, mentor students and host events.
