FOR MILLENNIALS PREPARING TO LEAD THE INDUSTRY

 

WHAT IS IT ABOUT

Young People in Public Relations (YPPR) is an organization that aims to educate our up-and-coming young professionals in the PR industry. What we believe the public relations industry lacks is the effort and ability to educate about the actual career field and the hands-on process of working in the field. We should allow our young PR professionals the opportunity to work as a publicist before they begin their journey after high school and college. This will allow them to be better prepared and able to succeed in their internships and corporate careers. YPPR allows PR professionals from all over to volunteer their knowledge and expertise to new and budding PR and communication professionals. The goal is to share knowledge, resources and tools with interested candidates to help them prosper.

 

A message from our director

"I’m going to talk to young aspiring PR professionals about the possibilities of breaking into the industry before they even step foot into corporate America. Simply because I’ve experienced PR pros say that they’re unable to assist because they were either too busy or just overlooked me and had no desire to help me better myself. I even worked in an agency with well-known 10+ year pros only to be told, “I don’t know why they put her under me, I’m too busy to help her” only to FAIL miserably. But that didn’t stop me! I went ahead and networked my ass off, found my own mentors, used some of my graphic skills to not only visually brand myself, but I was able to use what I studied to craft my very first PUBLISHED Press Release to land my very first client a feature in one of the largest African American media outlets! Just because I earned a B.A. in PR didn’t mean I knew what it was like to actually work in PR or how to succeed. So here I am, in 2018, ready to give people what I didn’t have -  a chance to understand what it takes and what to expect. I am here to give them exactly what THEY NEED to knock down doors, turn NO into YES , and create a lane of your very own!"
