Essentially, we are starting a student “Advisory Board” (we are calling them “Student Ambassadors”) and are looking for student to join. Bill suggested that you may know some good candidates. We’re looking for approximately 6-10 local students from diverse backgrounds and with diverse specialties. It’s a semester long internship for spring ’09 and includes a $500 stipend at the end of the project.
We hope it will be a great experience for them and us! We hope the Student Ambassadors will:
- work closely with us as we try to find creative ways to help students make healthy and safe decisions about alcohol.
- help us evaluate how to incorporate more social media, technology, and viral marketing techniques into what we do.
- interview peers and lead discussion groups on campus to inform us what students really think about what we (and our partner institutions) do.
