Orient us to your client and their work Non-profit corporation Through lacrosse education and training, SALP empowers at-risk youth by helping them to recognize what they are capable of accomplishing in their lives. What they do: Assist in the development and promotion of HIV prevention programs for orphans in South Africa. Implement and coordinate a lacrosse program in South Africa for at-risk youth.
What was your role In the project? Were hoping to increase their web presence and drive their website traffic. Established Facebook content ideas. Started a Twitter account. Gave them insight about the importance of using social media. Operations Manuel details how to use each site recommended.
What two things worked best? Created an implementation plan for Facebook Twitter Instagram Youtube Inspired SALP to use social media Promotion Marketing Networking tool Now have direction
What would we do differently? Have a better game plan before the first meeting. Try to have biweekly meetings. Better understanding of their commitment. Show them example postings to gain trust.
Was the experience worthwhile? Learned how to perform tasks, not implement them. Clients could have been more receptive.
How did you feel at the completion of the experience? Don’t feel 100 % complete. Cant feel complete until SALP implements our ideas. Could have felt more complete with a more receptive client who was open to communication. A client who knew what they wanted or was even looking for help.
Should the client based exercise happen again? Yes but make sure client expectations are spelled out in the beginning. Possibly get clients from Salisbury and surrounding area. Have bi-weekly update reports from client and students. Can be a very beneficial learning experience for both parties.
What was the most important thing you learned? Trust is key to success Communication is necessary Location of client is important
Additional Comments and Questions Does anyone have any questions regarding who our client is, what we did for them, or what we took away from this experience?
