GEAR UP Maine
Student Leadership Conference: ALL IN!
GEAR UP Maine in partnership with FOCUS held the GEAR UP Maine Student Leadership Conference: ALL IN! Over the dates of October 13-14 at the Hilton Garden Inn in Bangor where students and staff networked, planned and developed their CAT teams for the school year. 

Each school was asked to select two student CAT members (or students who could serve on the CAT moving forward) and one adult CAT member (who is a district staff member) to participate in the conference.
