the role responsibilities & outcomes
There is no typical day at SGPR for fellows and employees alike, and as such responsibilities may range from the simple (ex. assembling mailers) to the more complex (ex. drafting pitches and producing events).

Fellows will be trained (and become proficient) in the technology, tools and tactics inherent to agency world as a result of the program. Each fellow will participate in drafting and writing press materials, sourcing and curating relevant media lists, ideating creative storytelling opportunities, researching client-specific industries, participating in brainstorms, pitching journalists & bloggers, as well as potentially assisting in creative production (events, mailers, etc.) should something arise during the term on a fellow's team.
