Ensuring a Vibrant Economic Future

Up to Us is the only nationwide, campus-based campaign focused on building a sustainable economic and fiscal future for America's next generation. Across worldviews and backgrounds, Up to Us is fueled by the next generation of leaders who recognize how the nation's fiscal condition shapes their future opportunities. Through creative campaigns at colleges and universities across the country, emerging leaders power the Up to Us movement by educating and engaging their peers on the risks presented by America's overwhelming debt. 

Since its launch in 2012, Up to Us has reached more than 350,000 students on over 600 campuses in all 50 states. This unique program provides emerging leaders a platform for initiating collaborative discussions while gaining access to leadership development. Despite our generation's economic challenges, Up to Us participants remain optimistic and empowered to drive change and ensure a more sustainable future. We hope you will join us and continue the movement in your community.
