Volunteers

Available for Charlotte area students interested in gaining experience in the global public relations area, our volunteer program:

  • offers a real-world professional environment that provides a range of experience typical in public relations practice,
  • provides opportunities for the application of knowledge learned in the classroom,
  • enhances and develops students’ sills related to the public relations practice,
  • builds on students’ strengths in public relations practice to help them overcome their professional weaknesses,
  • provides opportunities to work with public relations professionals and understand the profession from the perspectives of practitioners in addition to scholars/educators, and
  • helps these students decide whether the public relations field is a suitable career choice.

In the past, volunteer tasks have included production of publications, strategic planning, event planning, visibility plan, and global public relations research.
