There are over 5,000 colleges and universities in the United States. Young people head to college to continue their education and learn important life lessons. College campuses offer students programs and events that help improve campus life.
The marketplace was packed with entertainment such as magicians and bands but was lacking programs that dealt with difficult topics that college students and/or their peers were facing.
Hope’s Voice was born from the belief that the most powerful tool in creating social change and kindness was sharing the stories of others. The agency, created by Creative Director Todd Murray, looked at issues facing young people and developed programs around topics that were real, relevant, and often misunderstood.
The agency developed dynamic lectures and/or programs and then went to work finding those who were impacted by the issue. Hope’s Voice identified the talent, created curriculum for the event, trained speakers on the most effective way of sharing their story. The agency quickly became a household name with over ten programs, hundreds of programs, over 75 speakers, and impacting the lives of thousands of college students. The award-winning agency was a one-stop shop for materials, training’s, speakers and events that were educating, inspiring, and challenging their campus.
