The GEAR UP Program (Gaining Early Awareness and Readiness for Undergraduate Programs), is designed to increase the number of low-income students who are prepared to enter and succeed in postsecondary education. The program model, named College & Career Readiness Collaborative Communities (CRCC), is a capacity-building initiative, designed to have an impact on students and schools that lasts well beyond the end of federal funding, with a heavy emphasis on facilitating partnership contributions and building a collaborative structure at the school level.
