Refuel Community = Inspired Action

For over 30 years, Refuel Agency has built relationships with school administrators, teachers, coaches, nurses, college administrators, and professors. The impact of our in-school and on campus media network goes beyond media placements in high-traffic areas. The effectiveness of our campaigns is also driven by the support and endorsement of in-school and on campus leaders that students listen to and respect. And these mentors and leaders are equally grateful to Refuel – and you – for educating their students on important causes.   
"The students loved the campaign, and felt that it made an important point. We witnessed great conversations start to happen in the hallways, with students doing research and calling each other out - we even ran a couple assemblies! We are happy to facilitate these meaningful conversations in our schools."
