The campaign, run by partner organizations including Upstream, the Saskatoon Health Region, The Saskatoon Food Bank and Learning Center, the Saskatoon Poverty Reduction Partnership, the Saskatoon Anti Poverty Coalition, and Unite Digital Marketing Co-op, has seen much Next Up influence. NU SK4 grad Rachel Malena-Chan has provided central campaign leadership through her work with Upstream, NU SK3 grad Amanda Guthrie served as campaign coordinator during the summer, and Fred Reiben, who is currently in the SK cohort, provided extensive marketing support through his work with Unite. Elizabeth Roth (current SK cohort) and Hilary Gough (NU SK4) also provided assistance through Upstream’s involvement. What an incredible success for both the Poverty Costs Team and the Next Up Saskatchewan alumni network!
