Young People in Public Relations (YPPR) is an organization that aims to educate our up-and-coming young professionals in the PR industry. What we believe the public relations industry lacks is the effort and ability to educate about the actual career field and the hands-on process of working in the field. We should allow our young PR professionals the opportunity to work as a publicist before they begin their journey after high school and college. This will allow them to be better prepared and able to succeed in their internships and corporate careers. YPPR allows PR professionals from all over to volunteer their knowledge and expertise to new and budding PR and communication professionals. The goal is to share knowledge, resources and tools with interested candidates to help them prosper.
