Service Learning

St. John's University

Part of  the St. John's University curriculum requires that students participate in a service learning initiative. My junior year at St. John's Haiti was still reeling from the January 10th earthquake that leveled the island. My classmates and I (a blend of public relation and marketing majors) worked extensively to create a marketing campaign to target the demographic most likely to donate to the cause.
