As part of the Middle School Community Service Program, the 9th grade IR Fellows have been working on improving the social media presence of the World Affairs Council of Greater Hampton Roads. After brainstorming ideas to improve the Instagram, Twitter, Facebook, and website of the WACGHR, the Fellows produced a social media audit to present to the Board of Directors. Comparing WACGHR’s current platforms to those of other World Affair Councils, the cohort concluded that the WACGHR was in need of a makeover, and we gave them advice on how to proceed. Although the process of social media change is gradual, the benefits of their new contemporary design will be worthwhile for the World Affairs Council of Greater Hampton Roads.
