The campaign is funded through grants from the Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation and the Carnegie Corporation to support Boston’s high school renewal work, with no public funds used to develop or place the advertisements. Pictured here is one of three transit ads, this one featuring Antionetta Kelley of Roslindale, a 2007 graduate of Fenway High School, who is now at Smith College, studying Government with plans to run for public office.

Boston students declare "Next Stop, College"
Commuters on MBTA subways and buses are learning about Boston's efforts to prepare students for college and career success, thanks to a new public awareness campaign launched this month. “Next Stop, College” features recent graduates and current high school students describing how their high schools have helped prepare them to achieve their college and career goals. Later this spring, the campaign will be expanded to include print advertising, bus shelters, and movie theater preview screens.
