First Year Forward
With support from the Michael and Susan Dell Foundation, PeerForward launched the First Year Forward program, a free program for incoming college freshmen pursuing a degree from a two or four-year accredited college or university. First Year Forward is based on research showing that text messaging is a low-cost, effective way to send reminders and information to college students and ultimately increase college persistence.
Our alumni are strongly encouraged to serve as First Year Forward Ambassadors responsible for sending a group of freshman students information, reminders, support, and advice on how to navigate the first year of college—all through weekly text messages.
