Experiential Marketing Agency and FLYTE Empower Youth
Hermosa Beach, CA (November 9, 2021)- Evolve Activation, an experiential marketing agency, is partnering with FLYTE to give students in underserved communities travel experiences. The marketing agency has committed to becoming a resource for charities looking to cope with the changing landscape of event fundraising.
“We are proud to partner with FLYTE to support their mission of empowering youth living in underserved communities through transformative travel experience,” says Evolve Activation’s Director of Account Services, Justin Tamony. “As a study abroad participant many years ago, I have a deep appreciation for the value of travel and how it shapes the perception of the world at a young age. It is an honor for myself and my colleagues at Evolve Activation to help provide this experience to others, especially to those who might not have the opportunity without FLYTE.”
FLYTE’s mission is to provide students with the chance to travel and study abroad to enhance cultural understanding. Additionally, by curating experiences where students learn from local changemakers and business owners, FLYTE bonds the students to the communities that they visit. The trips do more than allow students just to see the world; they also help students discover their power to change the world for the better.
“Our FLYTE Team is incredibly grateful to Justin, Katherine, Josh, and the entire team at Evolve Activation for donating their time to our mission of creating more equity in the travel and study abroad space so that more young people will have access to life-changing travel experiences. As a nonprofit with a small team, the talent and expertise from Evolve Activation has been integral to us launching more strategic initiatives to fuel the growth of our organization.” – Carmela Resuma, Executive Director, FLYTE
Evolve is serving as a full-service agency to FLYTE this year through strategic consultation, the creation of annual keystone events, and online campaigns to increase awareness and expand its donor base. The goal of all strategic efforts is to drive donations that will help even more students than ever before reaching their dream of being recipients of an educational trip.
