Are you a school or a program serving youth that has a goal to get more students to and through post-secondary education? At Transform Consulting Group, we are passionate about college and career readiness programs and are always on the lookout for resources to make life easier.
The Better Make Room initiative offers free support to students, parents, and school counselors on anything college related, and they launched a free texting service called UP NEXT. The catch? Once enrolled, the individual will receive important information and timely reminders about applying for college, financial aid, and even setting up student loans all via text message.
With 63% of students texting on a daily basis, mobile communicating is a great way to reach people. Research suggests texting information will actually increase students’ college enrollment and persistence, but only if they sign up.
Schools or youth serving organizations can check out this toolkit for tips on launching your own campaign and incorporating the content into your program.
As high school seniors are making decisions about college and applying for financial aid and post-secondary students are managing their student loans, UP NEXT is a timely resource to help our students stay on the pathway of post-secondary success.
At Transform Consulting Group, we work with college and career ready programs and education partners to help get more students to enroll in education beyond high school and complete their credential or degree. We help our clients access the latest resources and research to implement in their programming to accomplish their objectives. Contact us today to learn more and see how we can help!
