Michigan GEARUP
Gaining Early Awareness and Readiness for Undergraduate Programs

The Michigan GEARUP Program's mission is to provide an opportunity for underrepresented students to discover first-hand the potential of a college education and to expose students to the information, knowledge and skills they need to complete high school and prepare themselves adequately for college entry and success.

College Positive Volunteers (CPVs) are those college students and their administrators who are aware of how they impact college enthusiasm and readiness of the K-12 youth they interact with as they volunteer in local communities.
