Last Friday Marketing Society partnered with Project Empower and Miss New York to help teach Ave Marie Catholic middle school students marketing. We had a great turnout, over 7 NYU students volunteered as mentors for over 60 middle school students! The 6th, 7th, and 8th graders were tasked with creating their very own chocolate company and had to make many decisions from defining a target market to creating a slogan/advertisement for their company.
Working with these students was an amazing experience. The students were extremely friendly and quite receptive to both their mentors and the event in general. Community service events are a great way to interact with fellow students, give back to your neighborhood/city/state/country, and even learn something about yourself or the world. Project Empower is a great initiative, and it is one of the countless opportunities we all have to make a difference!
