Join us for Black Belt Friday as we travel to visit GEAR UP Alabama students in Hale County!
Travel with students, friends and colleagues from UAB on this unique mentoring opportunity led by GEAR UP Alabama and the Atlanta based non-profit, "Let Us Make Man." This bus trip will include a brief history lesson about Hale County and the Black Belt Region, and a critical dialogue about the work of GUA to significantly increase the number of students from high-poverty backgrounds who attend and succeed in postsecondary college and career opportunities. Once at the school, we will host a brief assembly before breaking into small groups with the students to discuss college and career readiness. Lunch and snacks will be provided.
