Founded in 1967, the Public Relations Student Society of America (PRSSA) is the foremost organization for students interested in public relations and communications. We advocate rigorous academic standards for public relations education, the highest ethical principles and diversity in the profession. PRSSA is made up of more than 10,000 students and advisers organized into 300 plus Chapters in the United States, Argentina, Colombia and Peru. We are headquartered in New York City, and led by a National Committee of PRSSA and PRSA members. We have a rich history of support from our parent organization, the Public Relations Society of America (PRSA), which offers professional development, networking opportunities and news.



Our goal is to evolve into an organization that is truly inclusive, focusing on diversity in every aspect of the Society. However, we can not become what we can not see. This opportunity seeks to leverage the PRSSA/PRSA relationship to reveal cultural representation and make tangible connections to diverse voices for pre-professionals.

Young adults who were at risk for falling off track but had a mentor are 130% more likely to hold leadership positions. 

80% of CEOs polled said they have had mentors, allowing them access to insider knowledge and power, fast tracking their careers.

We believe that this mentorship opportunity will enhance each student’s likelihood of being more successful. Your mentorship will provide an opportunity for multicultural students to gain first-hand insight about the communications profession. As a good mentor, you will show mentees the success and gratification you have found in your career and thereby encourage them to do the same. Your mentoring will empower the mentee to develop their own strengths, beliefs, and personal attributes. 

We encourage you to:

  • Offer an inside perspective on both you and your business
  • Listen, confidentially, to the things that are worrying them about their education/career
  • Share your own experience of failure and success
  • Give friendly, unbiased support
  • Provide honest and constructive feedback

This is a beneficial way for you and your company to stay up to date on current issues and spot talent for recruitment.

We know your time is valuable. We are only asking that you spend one day with a mentee. A minimum of 3 hours a max of 8 hours.
