MCN Rise Recruiter Resource Center: Final Push

Thank you for all your partnership so far in helping to spread the word about MCN’s partnership with Rise. Together we have helped thousands of teenagers apply. Now with the final January 17th deadline edging closer, we're excited to finish strong. We have refreshed this Resource center with more content and images. The resources will help most of your final outreach activities. Feel free to customize this language for any emails/WhatsApp outreach you do over the next few weeks, and don't hesitate to reach out if we can provide any more support.  


What is Rise? Rise is a program that finds brilliant people who need opportunity and supports them for life as they work to serve others. The program starts at ages 15–17 and offers Global Winners access to benefits that last a lifetime including need-based scholarships, a fully-funded residential experience, mentorship, career development opportunities, funding, and more. Final application deadline: JANUARY 17th 2024.

Draft outreach language

This month I am helping the Millennium Campus Network identify promising 15-17 year olds and help them apply to the Rise program. Rise is a unique program that challenges teenagers to identify a social issue in their community and design a project that responds to the issue. 100 Rise winners are selected annually to receive scholarships, funding, mentorship, and more. Rise was founded by former Google CEO Erick Schmidt and his partner Wendy Schmidt. I am thrilled to help recruit for this transformative program. 

If you know any eligible teenagers - from friends, siblings, mentees, etc.. please share this opportunity with them - it might change their lives. The registration link is here: . The final deadline is JANUARY 17th, and early applications are strongly encouraged.
