I would like to welcome a new Americorps VISTA member to our Michigan GEAR UP Team.  Asma Peracha will be assisting with statewide Michigan GEAR UP Initiatives such as financial literacy curriculum implementation, Michigan Education Trust (MET) awards roll-out, and our pilot Workforce Development Program.  Asma will share her time between our Lansing office and our Michigan GEAR UP partner, the University of Michigan School of Social Work (UJM-SSW).  Her planned schedule will have her in Lansing on Monday and Friday, and at the UM-SSW office in the University of Michigan Detroit Center on Tuesday through Thursday. 

Asma is a recent graduate of the University of Michigan.  Her experience with educational outreach to at-risk youth, volunteering, and advocacy will enable her to immediately have a significant impact on our youth programs and strategies.
