Texas GEAR UP (Gaining Early Awareness and Readiness for College)



The TCB-GEAR UP grant, provides quality pre-college services and programming that is responsive and tailored to the academic, social emotional, and life aspiration goals of TCB-GU students and families. A key component of our college readiness model is our College Life Coach (CLC) who supports student achievement and family engagement outcomes through tutoring, mentoring, small groups, family events & workshops, service learning projects and college tours. CLCs participate in, and deliver trainings throughout the academic school year on topics related to creating a college going culture, academic success strategies, student motivation & persistence, time management, parent leadership, household spending plans, college saving options, scholarships and grants.
