The Design Volunteers In Parks (DVIP) Program is an innovative program which works in collaboration with students from the Academy of Art University, R/GA, and Ex'pression College. The purpose of the program is to help students connect with the parks' natural and cultural resources while demonstrating their ability to understand particular targeted audiences. Students participating in the program benefit by obtaining experience as volunteers working for the National Park Service as clients. Students also have the opportunity to demonstrate their skills in new media design.

In this particular project, we challenged the students to produce a marketing campaign for the Healthy Parks Healthy People initiative. The public service announcement would be broadcasted in local clinics and doctor offices to encourage youth to get out of the house and play outside.

Ex'pression College students who worked on this project included: Lydia Baillergeau and Russel Demaestri.

Additional Consultants: Dr. Nooshin and Dr. Avril from the National Environmental Education Foundation.

Instructor: Kyle Norby
