Hopkins Social Marketing Advisory Board Application

Community Blueprint, a public health communications agency, is teaming up with the Hopkins One Voice Coalition, a community-wide effort aimed at decreasing and preventing the use of alcohol, tobacco, and other drugs among young people in the Hopkins Public Schools community, to develop social marketing campaigns around the dangers of alcohol abuse. One of the campaigns will be targeted to Hopkins High School students (10th-12th grade), with the goal of reducing underage alcohol use, and the other will be for Hopkins community young adults (18-25 not enrolled at HHS), with the goal of reducing binge drinking, and increasing the perception of harm of binge drinking. Position description We are looking for members to serve on our high school student and young adult advisory boards during April and May of 2014. Board members would be responsible for helping develop and implement the campaign, by assisting with messaging, overall planning/direction, potentially being a part of the actual marketing pieces, outreach strategy, naming and logo development. This development will occur over the course of multiple meetings – held at Hopkins High School or the Community Blueprint office in Minneapolis. Community Blueprint and Hopkins One Voice will create the marketing pieces over the summer and ensure they are ready to debut in the Fall of 2014 in time for the start of the next school year. Board members will be required to attend each meeting outlined in the board schedule. There may be some amount of homework, such as personal reflection or brainstorming, before meetings.
