Unfortunately at this time we do not have a product or separate type of account for Community Based Organizations (CBOs) including pre-college advising programs such as Upward Bound.
We have focused our resources on creating a platform for students and guidance counselors directly affiliated with and employed by high schools. Guidance counselor accounts can only be provided to counselors, or teachers involved in advising programs such as AVID, working directly for the school since these accounts allow supervision of all students at that school.
With that said, we highly encourage you to get your students to sign up for Going Merry regardless since it is not necessary for them to be invited or linked with a counselor/other organization.
Our scholarship platform still has a ton of room for improvement as we pursue building out a truly wonderful scholarship application experience for students. Our mission is to make it as simple and effective for students to apply and win scholarships.
Many CBOs have reached out to us expressing interest in an CBO portal or account that allows them to have oversight, provide guidance, and help their students apply to scholarships. We're excited to build out a CBO product in the near future since we know this can only have a positive impact on the process.
