Program Services

The City University of New York (CUNY) provides site coordinators with training workshops for NY GEAR UP staff. Programming includes:

  • College Readiness Workshop Series for Parents and Families
    The purpose of the workshop series is to provide NYGEAR UP families with information and resources that will help them as they support their children to be college ready. The workshops, created by CUNY professional staff, are designed to be delivered by NYGEAR UP sub-grantee staff, are age and developmentally appropriate, and are customizable to respond to the specific needs of the site or community. The workshops are designed to be delivered to small or large groups of parents and will include suggestions for expansion or follow up activities. CUNY will create two workshops per semester, four per academic year and can be delivered at a time that is convenient for school staff and parents.
