ASSOCIATION FOR MEDIA PROFESSIONALS
The Association for Media Professionals — known as AMP for short — was founded in 2018 at the University of Florida College of Journalism and Communications. Students saw a need for stronger mentorship and guidance during their critical first years on campus. With so many ways to get involved, it can be overwhelming to find a starting place.
So, they decided to create an organization that helps students get involved, gain experience and discover their interests no matter what their major is within the college. What started as a small group of communications students grew into a mentorship organization structured around three pillars of programming: professionalism, involvement and branding.
Today, students gain knowledge in these areas from fellow classmates who they relate to while hearing from distinguished guest speakers. The relationships formed have fostered the development of young media professionals through personalized advice and mentorships.
