Community Service


The Community Service Committee’s mission is to provide opportunities for OC PRSA members to give back to the community, share valuable expertise, gain experience and build relationships.

The committee serves as a resource for PR professionals at all levels who would like to volunteer to make a difference. The committee secures partnership opportunities for PR pros and students to connect with nonprofits, startups and other organizations with a mission to enhance the greater good.

By actively engaging as a liaison between PR pros and organizations in need, the committee provides PR pros with an opportunity to enhance their skills, build their portfolios, and provide an organization with the support they need to spread the message of a worthy cause. This is achieved through two annual OC PRSA Gives Back Events, an online matching platform and ongoing opportunities.

Additionally, the committee provides seasoned PR pros the opportunity to give back by mentoring a young professional on a potential project for an organization in need.

Committee members’ key responsibilities:

• Plan two annual OC PRSA Gives Back events, working with PRSSA, YoPro, nonprofits and other organizations to ensure the events’ success.

• Strategize and implement ways to spread the word about the committee and its services to create a robust database to best match PR pros and organizations based on need, skillset and availability.
