Title:SREB/Go Alliance
Organization:Southern Regional Education Board
Short Description:Prompted by successful campaigns in four states, SREB formed a partnership of member states who work together on common outreach approaches to motivate young people and their families to take the steps needed to complete high school prepared for college, postsecondary training, or work. Go Alliance aims to send clear messages to students who may not plan to go to college that emphasize how to get ready for college and overcome common financial and personal barriers.
Annotation:Prompted by successful campaigns in four states, SREB formed a partnership of member states who work together on common outreach approaches to motivate young people and their families to take the steps needed to complete high school prepared for college, postsecondary training, or work. Go Alliance aims to send clear messages to students who may not plan to go to college that emphasize how to get ready for college and overcome common financial and personal barriers. SREB’s Go Alliance helps member states make a strong case — directed especially to the students they most need to attract to college — that education can make an important difference in their lives. Go Alliance also helps students learn how to become ready for college by taking the appropriate middle grades and secondary courses, how to find out what they need to know about applying to and selecting the right college, and how to finance college.
