Gear Up

Gear Up is a federally funded grant initiative that provides students with the skills, access, preparation and information needed to enter and succeed in post-secondary education. In Lafayette, Gear Up works collaboratively with LPSS, higher education, and business partners to provide resources to students and parents in order to prepare and motivate students to achieve beyond their current expectations.

The Solution

GEAR UP needed a website that was easily updatable and allowed for more interaction with parents and students through their programs.

Firefly created a website design that reflects the youthfulness of the children it serves and functions seamlessly. To make events more accessible to the public, Firefly integrated a custom event calendar that allows parents to easily keep up with upcoming events and sign up their child through a simple to use online form.
