GEAR UP staff, school coordinators and administrators joined GEAR UP programs from across the country in Washington D.C. for our national conference.
59 teachers from 20 schools participated in interactive workshops dedicated to improving writing and math instruction. 98% of participants said they learned a skill, activity or lesson they could take back and use in their classroom, including one math teacher who professed, "It was one of the best trainings I've ever been to."
Over 130 middle and high school students from 13 GEAR UP schools came to Oregon State University for four days of building teamwork, communication and leadership skills hosted by Seeds Training.
Oregon GEAR UP also sponsored or provided scholarships for campus-based summer programs for middle and high school students at GEAR UP schools.
