However, research shows that Generation Y, 8- to 23-year-olds, are much less accepting of traditional marketing methods-- proving to be more skeptical and harder to reach than previous generations.
Malkia's Pride-n-Prose takes an integrated approach to reaching Gen Y kids by blending compelling content and creative storytelling with traditional, new and social media across all channels in order to attract loyal youth brand ambassadors.
Each July since 1985, America has celebrated Park and Recreation Month, a program of the National Recreation and Park Association (NRPA). The goal is to raise awareness of the vital impact that parks, recreation and conservation has on communities across the U.S.
More than 23 million children and teenagers in the United States ages 2 to 19 are obese or overweight, a statistic that health and medical experts consider an epidemic. And this epidemic puts nearly one third of America’s children at early risk for Type 2 diabetes, high blood pressure, heart disease and even stroke – conditions usually associated with adulthood. But there are opportunities every day to change these trends. And this September, there is an extraordinary opportunity to build awareness and take action – nationally, as well as in your state, city, workplace and home.
