Among GEAR UP Jefferson County (GU-JC)’s many goals is to increase academic performance, the rate of high school graduation, and participation in post-secondary education for GEAR UP students. They knew students needed and wanted more support to achieve these goals.
In order to scale mentoring, GU-JC partnered with the Student Success Agency to provide students with peer mentors — accessible anywhere, anytime through secure text messaging.
Student Success Agency support includes everything from connecting students with job shadowing opportunities, internships, and even helping them find after-school jobs in addition to providing academic and social-emotional support.
