PR Intern and Nonprofit MIXER to be held March 5 in Savannah, GA, sponsored by The United Way of the Coastal Empire, Carriage Trade PR and the Savannah Morning News

(SAVANNAH, GA) On Wednesday, March 5, the inaugural PR Intern and Nonprofit MIXER will offer a chance for PR students to meet representatives from a number of nonprofit agencies and to possibly develop an internship for the upcoming semester.

The MIXER is from 11 a.m. to 1 p.m. at the Savannah Morning News auditorium, 1375 Chatham Parkway.

The MIXER is sponsored by The United Way of the Coastal Empire, Carriage Trade Public Relations Inc. and the Savannah Morning News.

The MIXER is intended to be an opportunity for Public Relations juniors and seniors to meet leaders of local nonprofit establishments, work on putting together a yearly PR plan and getting to see how well they work together. The goal is to match the nonprofits with the students for summer or fall internships.

Any college junior or senior who is majoring in Public Relations may participate.

Marjorie Young, CEO of Carriage Trade PR will demonstrate how to put together a yearly PR Plan using her REPUTATION MATRIX™ method. Nonprofits and Interns will then work together to prepare a yearly PR plan. Savannah Morning News editors will discuss what makes a good press release and how interns should get information to the media.

The nonprofit organizations registered to attend include: CCDS, Habitat for Humanity, Ogeechee River Keeper, MorningStar Cultural Arts Group, Dawn’s Daughter Organization, Hospice Savannah, Savannah Morning News, Telluride Mountainfilm, Horizons, Med Bank, The Living Vine, AWWIN, Inc., Wilderness Southeast, Boyscouts of America, Grass Strip Foundation, Savannah Tree Foundation, Ossabaw Island, Speech and Hearing Savannah, The Ready Set Go! Back to School program, Coastal Georgia Botanical Gardens, and Park Place Outreach Shelter.

This event is free, but you must reserve a seat by Saturday, March 1. Space is limited to 50 PR students and 20 Non Profits. There is currently a wait-list for Non Profits.

Interns can ask for specific Non Profits – but pairing will not be guaranteed.
