Follow your passion. Have an impact. Make a difference.


The GEAR UP NC Appalachian Partnership is dedicated to providing our students with as many opportunities as possible once they graduate from high school. We also understand that the local communities within the Appalachian Region are reliant on small businesses and entrepreneurs for future economic development. That is why we feel entrepreneurship and entrepreneurial education is so important: our students are the next economic engines for their local communities. Therefore, we want to provide the educators within our local communities the resources they need to pass along the entrepreneurial spirit! Please browse through the resources we have provided, and use them as you need to. Please contact us with any questions you may have.
