Millennium Fellowship Project: Reach Higher - UpNext Initiative
The work at Reach Higher directly relates to UN Goal #4, as we work to ensure inclusive and equitable quality education and promote lifelong learning opportunities for all. The purpose of the evaluation that Reach Higher is conducting is to assess the impact of the texting intervention, UpNext, on college enrollment and persistence outcomes for high school seniors. The intervention’s goal is to provide students with important information about college, financial aid tasks, and deadlines they need to complete during senior year to pursue postsecondary education. The texts identify useful resources students can access to complete these tasks and may also invite students to text back and ask questions or receive further assistance from students in college or professional college advisor.
