Better Make Room Student Advisory Board

Application for the Better Make Room Student Advisory Board

A year ago, First Lady Michelle Obama’s dream for students across America manifested into an education movement: Better Make Room—a campaign to change the national conversation on education, connect with students, and celebrate college. Better Make Room gives students across the nation a space to speak out and helps support the college-navigating experience. Now, we need students to help Mrs. Obama build this movement from the ground up. So, we’re announcing the launch of the Better Make Room Student Advisory Board.

Members of Mrs. Obama’s inaugural Student Advisory Board are committed to making President Obama’s North Star goal a reality—that our nation will ONCE AGAIN lead the world in college completion. These students are the groundbreakers and the trailblazers, the creators and the innovators, the organizers and the revolutionaries, who sit ready to catalyze a mass movement of their friends from college application to college graduation. The Board will work to (1) create a college-going, college-persisting and college-graduating culture at their schools and (2) connect fellow students to any information and resources they might need to succeed. Each Student Advisory Board member will need an educator to sponsor the student’s application — and it could be you! Spread the word about the Board, find out more about this opportunity here, and to apply, students should fill out this application by November 27th at 11:59 pm ET.
