MI GEAR UP is funded nationally by the U.S. Department of Education and locally by the King Chavez Parks Initiative, Workforce Development Agency. 

MI GEAR UP facilitates student tutoring and mentoring, offers workshops on college preparation and financial aid, and assists schools and teachers to better prepare students for college studies.

The CMU MI GEAR UP program is in its third year working with a cohort of 925 9th grade students, families and staff in Harrison High School and four Flint area schools. The mission of the MI GEAR UP program is to significantly increase the number of low-income students who are prepared to enter and succeed in post-secondary education.
