A nonprofit corporation that works to enhance postsecondary education preparedness has launched a new online to tool to promote further learning and facilitate the planning process.

USA Funds Unlock the Future has been a popular college planning program, and the organization has just released its updated version.

It aims to reinforce the message about the benefits of higher education among middle school students and their parents, and offers resources to help families prepare for some of the challenges related to education beyond high school.

Actor/entertainer Nick Cannon has partnered with USA Funds to produce a video called 16 Summers to stimulate discussion and illustrate ways to prepare for higher education. The program includes an event planning guide, facilitator guide, activities and information resources

"The new Unlock the Future video can serve as a platform for discussion among the students who see it," says Deandra Thompson of Starfish Initiative, an Indianapolis-based nonprofit that promotes opportunities for economically disadvantaged high school students

She adds that "the video can give parents an idea of what students face at school, and in turn, students can see the types of challenges parents face, and this can open up discussion between students and their families."

USA Funds Unlock the Future is available for free to schools, community agencies and faith-based organizations that guide students in their pursuit of educational opportunities beyond high school.
