Be our Friend!
While social networking sites and other related social media may lead you to believe that this option to join us as our friend merely suggests you becoming our friend on Facebook or following us on Twitter, we'd like to propose a few other understandings of the phrase.
When we ask you to "be our friend" we are asking you to be an advocate for us out in the community. As a friend would tell others about a great idea or program they discovered, we ask you to do the same for our students and internship program. Word of mouth referrals go a long way in Tucson's tight-knit community, and we're working hard to be the buzz word amongst the city's top business and community leaders.
As our friend, there are also opportunities for you to support our training programs by serving as a presenter or guest speaker for one or more of our training topics. Your knowledge and expertise in various aspects of business and professionalism are valuable tools for our students as they enter the workplace and grow as young professionals. And as with all training programs, we are in constant need for donated supplies and material resources, so if you're not the public speaking type - fear not! You can still be our friend and support our training programs by donating supplies/material resources. For more information on being a friend for our training programs, please contact Samantha Miller at firstname.lastname@example.org
So, if the timing isn't quite right for you to become a Corporate Partner or Sponsor for our program, we would love for you to be our friend! We so appreciate all of your support!
