Senior Launch Guide
Thanks to the Helios Education Foundation, Arizona GEAR UP provides high school seniors—in 41 schools across the state—a Senior Launch Guide. This resource helps seniors launch their postsecondary goals and furthers Achieve60AZ initiatives.
The Guide includes a wealth of information about career exploration, FAFSA help, scholarship and job tips, selecting and applying for colleges, and more. Whether headed to a 4-year university, community college, technical school, the workforce, or the military, the Senior Launch Guide helps with every step along the way.
While students receive the guide in school and work with teachers and GEAR UP coaches to map out their plan, the guide can also download a PDF in English or Spanish. For those who want to go all-digital, download the writeable PDF. Before you press “download,” check out the video below for tips on how to best use the guide.
