The American Advertising Federation has unveiled a nationwide partnership with generationOn, the youth and family division of volunteer organization Points of Light. The partnership is designed to elevate the impact of youth service through a mentorship and creative development program.

Through this partnership, generationOn service clubs with members ages 5-18, will be paired with AAF’s vast network of over 200 college chapters to develop an advertising campaign to amplify youth public service programs across the country.
