GEAR UP Programs: Mentoring

​The goal of the GEAR UP Mentoring Program is to improve student's aspirations and motivate them toward successful mobility into society. The vision students hold of their future gives meaning to school work, resulting in improved academic achievements, self-esteem, self-concept, study skills, and attitude toward school.

A mentor specialist is assigned to recruit and train college students to become mentors, then work with middle school counselors to match them with students who need mentoring.
