GEAR UP ambassadors visit MCC art exhibit

The students we serve are a well-rounded and creative bunch.  We recently took them to an art exhibit at Mira Costa College and the response was overwhelming.  So many exciting things to see!

When young people think of jobs in the medical field, the primary two that first come to mind are doctors and nurses. Though plenty of students end up pursuing those fields, others may steer clear of health care because they don’t know what other opportunities exist in that field.

A partnership between MiraCosta College, Tri-City Medical Center and Oceanside Unified School District is trying to change that by enlightening students about what jobs exist out there in the medical business through discussions with professionals in the classroom, immersive experiences, and tours of medical facilities in the region.

Overnight trip to Soka, Chapman, and UCR

What an exciting time our GEAR UP students had, attending an overnight visit to Soka, Chapman, and UCR!  They had a chance to attend a college volleyball game and even got invited onto the court so the UCR players could meet them.  They also had a chance to tour the facility and experience the history and traditions of the schools!
