um pr students offer skills to YMca
Students enrolled in the University of Miami’s Public Relations Campaigns course are gaining valuable work experience by conducting a public relations campaign for the YMCA of Greater Miami’s annual Youth and Government Pre-Legislative Workshop.
The workshop, to be held tomorrow at the UM School of Law, will prepare Miami-Dade, Broward and Monroe high School students for the YMCA’s 45th annual Youth and Government Conference in Tallahassee next January. There, students will learn the value of democracy by overtaking the Florida Government as State legislators, Executives and Supreme Court Justices.
This is the forth year students will be handling the campaign for the YMCA. This gives the public relations students a great opportunity to gain work experience. The skills obtained through this course will help the students in their pursuit of a career in public relations.
