GEAR UP Kentucky

Meet the FACES of GEAR UP

GEAR UP Kentucky’s vision is “every student prepared for postsecondary success.” In GEAR UP Kentucky, we are committed to preparing the whole student for successful transition to and through postsecondary education – Financially, Academically, Culturally, Emotionally, and Socially. We call this approach the F.A.C.E.S. of GEAR UP.

GEAR UP Kentucky is also committed to empowering students to create and share their own stories, as well as to advocate for themselves.

Here, you will experience GEAR UP Kentucky students sharing their own unique stories, including their paths to success. All opinions expressed on this page are those of the students.
