Western Nevada GEAR UP Activities
Western Nevada College provides a number of skill building, college readiness, financial planning/ financial aid preparation, and career exploration exercises once a month with every school in our service area. We also provide our schools with short video clips from Western Nevada College each month that is in support of looking forward to post-secondary education, career building, and study skills. Our monthly activities at each school will reflect the video clips sent to each school, based on what area we are focusing on that month or overall.
