GEAR UP stands for “Gaining Early Awareness and Readiness for Undergraduate Programs” and is a grant that helps students starting in middle school prepare for education and training beyond high school. The vision of GEAR UP Waterbury is for all students to be academically, socially, and financially ready to enter and succeed in the postsecondary program or institution of their choice. Free services are provided to students and parents by Naugatuck Valley Community College GEAR UP staff located in your schools as well as on our NVCC campus in Waterbury.
