About GEAR

The GEAR program aims to empower students to “Gain Education and Access Results” through partnerships between local companies and school districts. Companies hire high school students as interns during fall, spring, and/or summer semesters and pair them with mentors in various company departments.

In exchange for their service, students earn an hourly wage while partnered with the company. In addition to this hourly wage, each student will receive money towards their scholarship fund for each hour worked. Upon successful completion of the semester, students have the opportunity to earn a bonus towards their scholarship fund.


We believe that young people are the future of our business. Joining the GEAR initiative is an investment in that future. As a group, we aim to develop a strong workforce and introduce young people to our industries early on. GEAR also gives us an outlet for partnering with our community and giving back to the people that make our company a success.


“Select’s goal in supporting this program is preparing students to contribute to the workforce and their community and giving them the opportunity to earn money for college. We look forward to the results of this project in Cooke county, and plan to roll out GEAR as a signature project in the areas we serve across the country.”
