Become a Mentor

Mentors are pros who have been in the industry for 5 years or more who have the potential to help our mentees understand their own unique career paths through shared experience, resources, and portfolio/resume reviews, and networking tips.

This is a FREE three month program beginning mid March and finalizing in May. Mentees will be paired with select advertising professionals in the Richmond community who will offer their expertise and recommendations on their portfolios and books/websites/blogs that guide creative professionals. Carried out entirely over Zoom and web events, you can expect to spend 1-3 hours a week meeting with your mentee, curating resources, and connecting with the full group in meetings and workshops.
