2020 GEAR UP Georgia Leadership Summit

The GEAR UP Georgia 2020 Leadership Summit will take place at the University of Georgia Center for Continuing Education and Hotel on March 6-8, 2020. Two students from each GEAR UP Georgia cohort high school and two students from the priority district will be invited to attend, along with their parent/guardian.

The GEAR UP Georgia Leadership Summit might be the best residential college access event EVER. Students get to learn more about college access and success, make new friends from across the state, discover the University of Georgia while in leadership training on campus, develop leadership skills to influence others for the greater good.

Students will attend leadership classes that include martial arts styled board breaking, impromptu dance sessions and a whole lot of character development in between all the excitement. In addition, you will be on a college campus for three days with GEAR UP Georgia students from multiple schools and counties.

Parents/guardians will attend leadership workshops designed specifically for adults to help them better prepare their family for college and learn how to leverage the resources GEAR UP and the state of Georgia provides to ensure academic success.
