Texas GEAR UP in Action: Letting Go Class

  • Texas GEAR UP

TXGU Grant: Texas GEAR UP State Grant

Big Picture: Anyone involved with GEAR UP certainly knows that parents are an integral part of students' success when it comes to going to college. That's why TXGU grant GU2 created a series of parent-focused classes aimed at an incredibly important goal: letting go. For many families, this is the first time anyone has had the opportunity to go to college and with so many unknowns, it's easy to become overwhelmed. By helping address issues parents might have—from knowing what financial aid options are available to the difference between living in dorms and apartments—GU2's Letting Go class seeks to empower parents through information.
