Maine State GEAR UP
GEAR UP Is Back in Maine!
From 2005-2011 Syntiro administered this six-year federal grant for the Maine Department of Education. The goal of this effort was to create a sustainable culture in schools that supports students who are from economically disadvantaged households in preparing for, accessing and succeeding in post-secondary education. Syntiro staff, in partnership with the MDOE, 19 Maine school districts and numerous other partners worked to assure that all Maine students had the aspirations, skills and resources needed to enable them to enroll and succeed in college. Maine State GEAR UP served over 5000 students in 48 schools from 18 school districts throughout Maine. www.gearupme.org
