PEF is partnering for the 2nd time with the TN Higher Education Commission to organize the 2015 GEAR UP TN Youth Summit for 200 rising 10th graders from GEAR UP sites across the state of TN. The summit is from June 7-10, 2015 on the campus of Middle TN State University. Two hundred low-income/first generation participants will be accompanied by 50 chaperones. Students arrive on campus on June 8th.
We are seeking dynamic faculty leaders who have a passion for helping students plan their future. Room and board will be provided for all faculty unless otherwise stated.
Look forward to working with you on this worthwhile project.
