Teachers & Guidance Counselors
Providing students with class room presentations is a key component to them successfully navigating the various colleges and programs available to them and ultimately deciding what College they will attend. Some students may have a particular interest that they may not be aware could evolve into a successful career. And in some cases this may decide if a student goes to college or not. As such, Madison Media Institute has a Community Outreach Coordinator that would love to come out to your school or organization and discuss our College and its programs. Providing the students with an overview of our programs could be the turning factor in their life. If this is something you are interested in, contact our Community Outreach department to schedule a visit.
