        Supporting Students and Giving Them Second Chances

        Learn how mentors from GearUp helped a student in trouble turn his life around in this clip from American Graduate Day 2014. Hector grew up in a tough neighborhood, and was frequently in trouble himself until he started working with Emily Johnson, a mentor from GearUp. But despite having the support of a mentor and his coaches, Hector still did not believe in himself, and was arrested in high school. Hector had a transformative experience at Anytown camp and resolved to put more effort into school and achieving his goals. He now acts as an ambassador for GearUp and works to inspire young people.
