Initiative Goal: raise awareness among high school and college students to the multitude of career opportunities in POP—Prosthetics, Orthotics and Pedorthics.
We've been busy with numerous activities in support of the Career Awareness Initiative, both ongoing projects and some exciting new ones. In addition to the new website, the social media outreach, digital advertising and 40+ Ambassadors featured online, we have begun the process of reaching out to potential partners to help us spread the news about POP careers to their members and constituents.
Each of our POP Ambassadors has access to a complete toolkit featuring ways to engage students in local communities. Whether you are a current Ambassador or just wish to reach out in your own community, the toolkit is available to you here. As the website, the Ambassador program and partner outreach continues to grow, we will share more updates on the success of these initiatives and other new projects on the horizon. Consider joining us in our outreach by volunteering to be an Ambassador. If you are willing to share your story about your professional experience and make a meaningful impact on behalf of the profession, please let us know! Message us at POPAmbassadors@MessagePartnersPR.com to get involved or learn more.
Our newly launched Partner Program identified 80+ associations, NGO’s, membership groups and organizations that specifically support high school and college age students in STEM, technical education, science and health careers. We are reaching out to these groups to partner with us on getting our message about rewarding careers in POP to their members and stakeholders. We anticipate that our success with partner outreach will further push the POP career message among our targeted audience.
