I am writing to inform you of a free summer internship program offered by the National Center for Smart Growth and The University of Maryland Urban Studies and Planning Program.  This six week internship will teach high school students how to conduct a community audit as well as how to implement Geographic Information Systems (GIS) to analyze the data collected from the audit.  At the end of the internship, students will present their findings to the local community.

I have attached a flyer about the program.  Please forward to students who may be interested as well as teachers who are able to refer students.  Let me know if there are any further questions.

Thank you,

AdCamp Flyer - Application Due 4-8-14

My name is Barry Abrams and I’m a “concerned citizen” and resident of Prince George’s County.  I volunteer and look for ways to improve the quality of life of residents in Prince George’s County. One of the ways of improving the quality of life in the County is partnering students and independent locally-owned small businesses by way of AdCamp.
AdCamp, sponsored by the American Advertising Federation, provides a week-long camp at Howard University for junior and senior high school students with a 3.0 or higher GPA that are interested or open to learn about the advertising industry. The AdCamp Director, Melissa Wong and Kai Jones have expressed a strong interest in recruiting students from Prince George’s County and building relationships with local advertising agencies. The summer camp incorporates field trips to visit clients, media companies, and advertising agencies. It also gives students a chance to meet new people, work collaboratively, meet advertising executives, and use the skills learned during the camp to create an advertising campaign for a fictitious or real business.
Given that I see very few Prince George’s County independent locally-owned small businesses advertise on platforms such as TV, radio, print, or the Internet, I would like to see the students from the County use their creativity to produce a media campaign for one of these businesses.  The experience is a win-win for all involved. It provides hands-on experience that students will be able to put on their resume as well as college application. It exposes students to the needs of independent locally-owned small businesses in their community and how they can use the skills learned to generate revenue or income.
This experience will expose independent locally-owned small business owners to skills students possess and their technical value. If all goes well with the 2014 AdCamp partnership, independent locally-owned small business owners will begin to look at students as a trusted resource to grow their business and think outside the box. Hopefully, they will begin to seek out the expertise of motivated students for advertising and marketing as well as other core components of their business.
In closing, the deadline for applying for the Summer 2014 AdCamp is Tuesday April 8, 2014.
Please have the students apply for the Summer 2014 AdCamp online at: http://www.aaf.org/default.asp?id=1190
