We make sure that students have what it takes to make higher education a reality.

At GEAR UP, we believe that young people who start planning in middle school have a better chance of entering college and completing their degrees. With programs in 73 school districts around the state of Washington, we focus on students from underserved schools, helping them to prepare for college and gain access to financial aid.
