Over the course of ten months, the DLI facilitates a tight-knit learning community of senior-level leaders focused on creating, strengthening and sustaining a college-going culture within GEAR UP school districts.
PLI is a sequence of comprehensive workshops (in English and Spanish) designed to empower parent and family advocates with the tools, resources, and strategies to help advance the goals of GEAR UP in their communities.
