Over the past two weeks GEAR UP: College Now-Career Connected! has successfully brought the GEAR UP & GO Workforce Readiness Institute to cohort students in Edinburg (November 28, 2023) and Laredo (December 6, 2023). The focus of the event was to better prepare students for the employment process. In partnership with Workforce Solutions (Hidalgo County) and the Laredo College Workforce Development Center, students earned 4 skill certifications: Resume Writing, Interview Skills, Problem-Solving, and Dressing for Success! They also heard from wonderful speakers Chief Meteorologist Tim Smith (KRGV-TV), Journalist Macarena Hernandez, and Senator Pete Flores, who provided career and life advice. Students were also treated to a fashion show on how to dress for success presented by their GEAR UP peers! Our College Now-Career Connected! students are ready to conquer the world! ๐Ÿ’š

Our GEAR UP: Pathways to the Future! 9th grade cohort recently had the fantastic opportunity to participate in FESTIBA, UTRGV - The University of Texas Rio Grande Valley's Arts and Literacy Event. This incredible initiative aims to shine a light on the pivotal role of literacy, culture, and the arts in our community, reaching out to students, parents, and educators in the Rio Grande Valley.

Our students were deeply inspired as they engaged with prominent local artists, diving deep into discussions about the artists' unique processes, techniques, and the profound importance of art and literacy in their lives. The presenters did an excellent job of highlighting the pathways within the arts waiting to be explored.

Grateful for this enriching experience and the chance to further ignite the passion for arts and literacy in our students! ๐ŸŽญ๐Ÿ“–
