GEAR UP 4 LA At a Glance

I am a high school student and my counselor helped me understand my options. This is how I fell in love with my future major. I want to be an entrepreneur. I want to own my own business, make a platform for myself, and have people know who I am.

I am so happy that other students get to experience what I did, because personally, I don’t think that I would be where I am today if it wasn’t for GEAR UP.

GEAR UP understands us as parents. They know what we need, they know what we fear. They work with us so we can work more effectively with our children.

GEAR UP changes families, it changes generations, and that’s what I love to do!
