YPG Cares: Career Workshop with the Fresh Air Fund

When did you know that you wanted to find a job in publishing? How early on? Join YPG Cares and the Fresh Air Fund for a career workshop on Saturday, October 28, from 11 AM-12:30 PM. The Fresh Air Fund is an organization that provides year-round leadership and educational programs and workshops for New York City children from low-income communities.

 

We need 5 volunteers to do a 5-10 minute presentation where they talk to a group of middle school students about what they do in publishing. Ideally it’d be great to have people that work in different departments (production, operations, marketing, etc.) so students can get a better sense of what the overall industry is like. The Fresh Air Fund suggested incorporating an activity along with the presentation. For example, if you work in publicity, you could tell the students a plot synopsis of a book from your company and have them write a pitch letter. It’s a great opportunity to foster creativity and inspiration among tomorrow’s writers and publishing professionals.

 

Please contact Keilin Huang at khuang@leeandlow.com if you’re interested in participating.
