GEAR UP TN Youth Summit

The GEAR UP TN Youth Summit is a college preparation experience sponsored by the Tennessee Higher Education Commission and the Tennessee College Access and Success Network. The annual Youth Summit provides 200 GEAR UP TN cohort students from across the state the opportunity to spend two days immersed in college culture. Students meet peers from other GEAR UP TN schools and attend activities developed by college access professionals to promote the college-going culture among students. The event provides students with a diverse set of activities that complement direct services provided by GEAR UP TN in their districts and help them develop skills as young leaders who engage with their peers in discussions of the value of education.
