MENTORING @ CREATIVE BOOT CAMPS
Creative Boot Camps aren't just unique opportunities for culturally diverse young people to get up close and personal with the advertising world and its exciting career possibilities. They are also a chance for advertising professionals to give back to the next generation of industry superstars.
During the four-day Creative Boot Camps, participants work in teams to produce full-fledged campaigns for real clients provided by the sponsoring agencies. As a Creative Boot Camp mentor, you'll help to cultivate the student CBC experience through campaign ideation and guiding the creative process. For a minimum of 2 hours (or more if you choose), you are asked to share valuable knowledge, advice and industry experience with the participants. On the final day of the Boot Camp, you will have the pleasure of observing and judging the final campaign presentations, and eventually selecting a winning team!
"It was so great to participate as a mentor and judge last weekend at The One Club for Creativity's Creative Boot Camp in San Francisco. I was proud to be one of two women of color on the judging panel because #RepresentationMatters! It was amazing to see so many creative ideas come out of three days of intense workshopping… the future of advertising is bright!"

“My mind was absolutely blown by what the students had to offer. We have our own agency, and we work closely with a few others, but I do not believe we could’ve uncovered the caliber of ideas we were able to witness today.
