Last week, members of the PCG Education-UI team attended the NCCEP/GEAR UP Conference in Washington, DC for three days of networking and learning. Working the booth and showcasing U.I.’s dynamic services were Thomas MacDonald, National Director of Business Development, Kara Lewis, Regional Educational Consultant, and Summer Tarpley, Business Development Associate.
This year’s theme was “Calling All Superheroes,” celebrating the over 1,800 participants as modern day superheroes. GEAR UP (Gaining Early Awareness and Readiness for Undergraduate Programs) is a federally funded program that provides college-positive programming for middle and high school students.
PCG Education-UI supports GEAR UP and students on the college and career ready path by providing learning solutions nationwide. This includes our TutorED Daytime Interventions, EPIC Afterschool and Summer Camp programs, and EdForce staffing solution.
Members of the U.I. team look forward to attending the next NCCEP/Gear Up Conference in February!
