Transcript of YearUp

Year Up
Message Platform
Key Themes
1. Everyone deserves the right to education.
2. With the right support anyone can achieve a bright future.
3. With the right skills, the right job is possible for anyone.

Key Messages
1. Education matters.
2. Building brighter futures.
3. Building skills, reaching potential.

We are wasting talent when we can't afford to waste anyone.

Six million young adults are out of work, out of school and without access to the economic mainstream. But they have a lot of talent. Fourteen million jobs requiring secondary education will go unfilled in the next generation.

We need to close this opportunity divide. Year Up can work to fix this, with the help of the community and volunteers; we can make a brighter future for all.

Communication Objectives
Our first objective is to target students 18-24 years old to get them to participate in the program.

Our second objective is to get local businesses to support Year Up financially and make them more aware of us as an organization.

Our last objective is to get businesses to support Year Up by offering internships at their companies, and to make them more aware of us as an organization.

The Demographic forces are students 18-24 who have a high school diploma or equivalent. They must be low income, and a US citizen or permanent resident.

Economic Forces are the donations we get from our Alumni. Also as the economy grows so will Year Up, as an organization. With more money in the economy that means more money for jobs.

Technological forces are helping Year Up because as technology expands, that means more ways to reach our target audience.

Political forces are seen when Barack Obama came to visit YearUp in Washington DC, he called the program successful. With support from the president YearUp will continue to try and receive political affiliations.

Social concerns include the enviroment, if Year Up works with reputable organizations they can help subdue the enviromental issues by educating volunteers and students.
