Winslow High School's Tyler Long (tenth grade) will attend the National GEAR Up Summit Leadership Academy in Washington D.C. July 17-20. He is one of four GEAR Up students state-wide to be selected for this conference. The Youth Leadership Summit provides a high-quality, national-level interactive training experience and provides for peer learning experiences focused on life, leadership, and learning-to-learn skills for students that currently attend a school in the GEAR UP program. Students are given the opportunity to identify and maximize their unique leadership skills, create relationships and network with other student leaders, facilitate discussions about issues that affect them and their schools daily, and build the skills needed to make positive changes happen. GEAR Up provides all of the funding for this conference and there is no out of pocket costs for Long to attend.
