GEAR UP to Volunteer

GEAR UP promotes a service learning environment, encouraging students to volunteer in many capacities in order to provide service to the community, engage in socially responsible activities and conversations, develop a philanthropic mindset, and build character and grit.

GEAR UP utilizes the many relationships with business and community partners to provide opportunities for students to become involved in community service projects while working alongside civic minded individuals. The goal is not only to expose our students to the community in a way that is productive and charitable, but also to expose community members to students who are proud representatives of their peer group.
