Public Relations and Mentoring

Public Relations Director: 2015 — 2016

Background: Founded in 2006, Thomas Lay After-School Program connects Athens-area students with university student mentors in a fun, safe environment every afternoon. The organization enlists the leadership of a team of student volunteers and facilitates mentorship for dozens of local elementary and middle-grade students each afternoon.

My role: As Public Relations Director, I created print materials for the organization, advertised, spoke on the program's behalf at events, managed social media accounts, and redesigned the organization's website by migrating it to a new platform. I also took photographs of mentors and mentees for use in promotional materials.
