Resources for Students

Resources from the New Hampshire GEAR UP Alliance help our students plan their next steps as they move from school to college and careers. Resources are designed to help you prepare for all of your options after high school. These include the three E’s: education, employment, and enlistment in the armed forces.

You’ll find our own Compass and Navigate guides for middle and high school students, monthly toolkits, and GEAR UP newsletter. We’ve also compiled online resources to help you find academic support, prepare and pay for college, and explore careers.
