Ideal Pioneer Partners:

  • Want to use mobile messaging to provide students with important college and financial aid information, but who perhaps lack the capacity, expertise, or resources to design and implement a mobile messaging campaign on their own;

  • Want to incorporate Mrs. Obama’s voice, messaging, and creative content into their outreach to students;

  • Have access to or can collect students’ cell phone numbers and consent to receive messaging; and

  • Can contribute a portion of the costs associated with implementing a messaging campaign. Better Make Room can work with each Pioneer Partner to identify a funding level the Partner can contribute and what Better Make Room can contribute to fund mobile-based outreach to students.

As a “Pioneer Partner” you’ll gain access to mobile messaging services at a comparably low rate and will be able to work closely with Up Next to create a messaging campaign that aligns with your priorities.

If you’d like to become a Pioneer Partner for Up Next, please contact Don Yu, the Director of Better Make Room, at don@civicnation.org.
