GEAR UP Maine Student Videos

GEAR UP Maine highlighted two students from Fort Fairfield High School about their experience being a GEAR UP student. GEAR UP is creating a better college-going culture in Maine schools and students are becoming more excited and ready for a postsecondary experience. Check out these two student videos and please share far and wide!

All of our GEAR UP students have a story to tell. It's up to us to help them find their voice to tell it. Do you know a student who would be interested in sharing their story with GEAR UP Maine? Be it a story of success or struggle, we want to hear it and share it. It's so important now, more than ever, that our students' voices are heard. Please contact GEAR UP Maine Communication Specialist, Kayla Hopkins if you are interested in diving into this student story-telling adventure.
