Financial Literacy Summits
Each year, the Region One ESC GEAR UP Partnership hosts a series of Financial Literacy Summits; which are professional conferences designed to provide vital information to our students regarding financial literacy and financial aid. These Summits include a keynote address with an inspirational message showcasing a local entrepreneur. Breakout sessions follow hosted by Deep South Texas Literacy Alliance partners including members from banking, government, non-profits, community organizations, and institutes of higher education.
Multiple opportunities are provided throughout the day for students to interact with these professionals. The Summits are held in numerous locations throughout the service area providing students an opportunity to build relationships with their local financial community.
