Operation Inspire: Connecting NYC Public H.S. Students & Educators to the Advertising & Marketing Fields

Posted on Updated on

Operation Inspire is a day dedicated to connecting with, informing and exciting a broad range of high school students from all cultural backgrounds and their educators about the opportunities and rewards available from a career in advertising and marketing. The TORCH Program, along with the Art Directors Club, Stillwell & Partners, Virtual Enterprises, VCU Brandcenter, NYC Department of Education and the School of Visual Arts, will be facilitating this inspirational one day workshop during Advertising Week, on October 3rd, 2011.

The event will feature industry professionals from all aspects of the visual communications industry discussing the myriad career opportunities in the field. A cocktail reception and raffle will conclude the evening. We are excited to be able to offer several prizes to attending educators, including cash awards and Adobe creative software, to benefit city schools and their programs.

This event for educators will follow on the heels of an earlier session for students. During this session they will hear from leading creatives in advertising and graphic design and get to participate in a career development workshop to learn (or reinforce) the skills necessary to applying to college and jobs. Lunch will be provided for.

If you are an educator interested in attending please email francis@thetorchprogram.org.
