NCCEP's Leadership in the GEAR UP Movement

NCCEP provides two critical leadership roles to the GEAR UP community. 

First, NCCEP serves as the voice of GEAR UP in Washington, DC, advocating for the GEAR UP program before the White House, Members of Congress and the Department of Education.

Second, as the U.S. Department of Education-designated training and technical assistance provider to the GEAR UP grantees, NCCEP serves as the annual conference convener, offering training and programs to support and advance the GEAR UP movement.
