In Progress

Matched with:

Debbie B.

This project will save us $6,000 , allowing us to pay for 5 flights to South Africa for IYLI Fellows this summer.

What We Need

  • Document that articulates in a consistent voice key messages about the Organization’s identity, constituents, mission, and vision
  • Creation of taglines and talking points to help the Organization communicate clearly and concisely
  • Recommendations on tailoring messaging for common communication channels (e.g., website copy, printed marketing collateral, pitching verbally)

How This Will Help

The success of our organization depends on how well we market ourself to new demographics. Without your help, we cannot reach new funders. Your skills will empower us to build the exposure and financial support IYLI needs to grow.

What We Have In Place

We currently have a Twitter account and an active Facebook page which should make it easy for you to get started. We also have recently updated a lot of our marketing materials and the ability to provide any other information you need.

Fun Fact

IYLI students travel within each country they study abroad. Students experience city life, rural life, tourist attractions, etc. (Ex. Egypt trip - students travelled to Cario, Aswan, Hurghada, Luxor, and Nuweiba)
