Group Service Partnerships
Park scholars share their communications talents across a variety of partnerships with local organizations. Upper-level Park scholars assume key leadership roles in these collaborations. For the 2012 - 2013 academic year, following are the Park scholar group service partnerships:
Concert for a Cure:
Concert for a Cure is an annual concert that raises funds to support the American Cancer Society. For this project, scholars are involved in solicitation, public relations, social media, creating advertisements, and logistical planning. The concert brings together students and town members from all over in support of finding a cure for an illness that affects so many worldwide. Join us and help fight for a cure.
Media Club educates elementary, middle and high school students on media and its effects on their lives. Projects include Media Club, Journalism Club and Film Club. Scholars will develop and direct programming surrounding print advertising, public relations and communications, commercial production, journalism ethics, broadcast journalism, film production and new media technologies.
Megaphone Media Productions:
Megaphone Media Productions is a student-run organization that provides free media support to non-profit organizations in the City of Ithaca. In the past, Megaphone has helped organizations utilize media outlets such as radio, television, print, and internet services to successfully promote themselves to the local community. Projects for this year include: producing a promotional video for Better Housing of Tompkins County; providing media and marketing assistance to RIBs (Recycle Ithaca's Bicycles); and providing media and marketing assistance to Finger Lakes ReUse.
