Talk, Read, Sing
Based on a marketing & communications plan I produced for the organization, we changed the way our community engagement department outreached to children and families by creating an interactive environment at special events to highlight our key messaging around early literacy.

Brand Activation at Special Events
First 5 San Bernardino participates in more than 100 events annually, engaging approximately 7,000 parents and children per year through special events around the County of San Bernardino.
Talk, Read, Sing Themed Brand Activation
Historically, First 5 San Bernardino would set up an exhibit table to pass out information and promotional items to parents while providing an opportunity to answer questions about funded programs and services offered around the county. To be more impactful towards our goals of encouraging parents to increase the value and practice of early literacy development with children ages 0-5, we set up a space to Read with chairs and books; Talk while they play a game or perform an interactive activity and Sing with instruments and space provided to make their own music.
