Signal Vine is excited to partner with the First Lady’s Office, the U.S. Department of Education, and Civic Nation to provide students across the country with texts that contain personalized information and encouragement about important college and financial aid resources and deadlines. The Up Next text messaging program connects advisors one-on-one with students to help them complete college and financial aid tasks.

Celebrities have been joining the effort to publicize the Better Make Room and Up Next program. Check out the star-studded PSA that was released last month here.

To quote First Lady Michelle Obama, the Better Make Room public awareness campaign is “about valuing success in the classroom instead of just on the big screen or on the basketball court. And it’s about turning the culture of celebrity upside down so that we don’t just have kids worshipping celebrities, but we also have celebrities honoring kids who are working hard and achieving their goals. That’s where we’re going to shine the spotlight – on those kids and their stories.Learn more about Up Next by visiting Better Make Room.
