Workshop

Workshop prepares students for a future in marketing and communications, while helping nonprofits—working for causes that impact people’s lives—have great work.

The work any of us does to make another person’s life better is the most rewarding. During the fall and spring semesters, we hire three senior level college student interns from the fields of advertising design, as well as marketing and communications. During the semester they work together as a team for a nonprofit client—one account manager, one writer and one art director—creating a marketing plan and sample work the nonprofit can use to further its mission. At the end of the semester, the students have strong work to add to their portfolios and the nonprofit has tools they can use to meet their goals.
