  1. My organization offers job specific education to the most impoverished in Honduras and Nicaragua. Our rigorous 12-month program teaches 18-30 year olds skills in English, Accounting, Sales, Computers, Graphic Design and other classes and finds them internships and jobs. Many of our students are going from earning $1.00/day middle-class status. Our vision is to help break the cycles of poverty in these areas by offering education to those who would not be able to secure it at any other place.

    We desire to launch a comprehensive social media campaign that will attract donors to our cause. And perhaps we could implement some of these ideas in Central America to help introduce our program to others who are searching for a way out of their harsh circumstances. I would love to attend this conference and learn more about how to effectively use social media tools so we can continue to educate and uplift our friends in Central America.

    Thank you,

    This is an awesome opportunity to be educated on the latest in technology and communication. I am obsessed with location-based services (ASU’s Foursquare ambassador) and very much want to meet some of the key people in the industry. Also, I am a poor college student and although the idea of paying to be educated is something I am used to, I would love, love, LOVE some free tickets to this event where I hope to garner info that will help promote ASU and local businesses.

    Thank you
