Daylee Baker

Communications & Marketing Manager, with Get Schooled since 2015

What excites you most about Get Schooled?

The ability to mix digital media with creating avenues of accessibility to higher education. I enjoy crafting engaging content that provides resources to students from underrepresented backgrounds in fun and innovative ways and actually makes an impact.

John Branam

Executive Director, with Get Schooled since 2019

What excites you most about Get Schooled?

Being part of a team that's exclusively focused on helping youth - many of whom are black and brown-skinned and/or from low-income families - get into college, find their first jobs and succeed in both. Had the internet and Get Schooled existed when I was in high school, it would have been extremely helpful as I struggled to navigate the college application and first job-finding processes!

Chris Brown

Director of Communications, with Get Schooled Since 2019

What excites you most about Get Schooled?

I am moved by how many young people - especially low income, first gen, and rural - don't have access to up-to-date information, resources, experience, and advice needed to access college and jobs. I love that Get Schooled is completely free and delivers an effective and high-quality experience for young people. I am excited and driven to get it in front of more young people.

David Childers

Program Manager, with Get Schooled since 2016

What excites you most about Get Schooled?

The opportunity to help students navigate and overcome the numerous barriers - both large and small - to obtaining and affording their education, building a career, and succeeding in the world.

Andre Garza

Assistant Communications & Marketing Manager, with Get Schooled since 2018

What excites you most about Get Schooled?

To be part of a mission that is supporting students to empower themselves as they learn, grow, and lead is an amazing opportunity. Get Schooled meets students where they're at - online, text, social media - helping them through the college application process, a partnership that could have changed the game during my own journey to a degree!

What excites you most about Get Schooled?

There are two things that excite me most about Get Schooled: 1) Supporting students with information I wish I had when I was navigating my college journey as a first-gen student. My hope is to make your journey a little easier; 2) Getting "I thought you were a robot" messages on our Textline. We are real people chatting with you!

What excites you most about Get Schooled?

Get Schooled is an exciting organization to work for because we have the ability to drastically change how youth get to and through college and to their first jobs by meeting them where they are - online! By providing the necessary resources to access college in a free and accessible way, Get Schooled is ensuring many more youth are able to realize their dreams. My college and first job experiences were integral in my journey to finding my dream career, and I love getting to help youth navigate their paths to success everyday!
