G3: Get a Skill, Get a Job, Get Ahead

Project Overview

AccessU teamed with The Hodges Partnership to support the Virginia Community College System (VCCS) in brand development, advertising, video, content creation, web design, and statewide PR communications for the launch of Governor Northam’s flagship G3 program in 2021. This comprehensive campaign was fast-tracked, developed, and launched in less than six months and achieved great success. We worked diligently with public information officers from all 23 colleges to build consensus and drive support from these very different schools.
