New Stuff and Inspiration
Mile High Youth Corps
We started a program this winter with Metro, and the idea was that we’d partner with a teacher and help find real clients for students to do real work for. The benefit would be mutual- students could create portfolio pieces, and clients with smaller budgets would get some great value on quality work. We would attend some classes and help to mentor the student’s ideas and get a good campaign going.
Then, we had our interns for the spring (the fabulously aforementioned Greg Jesse and Jamie Howe) come in and finish up the production of the “What did you build today” campaign for the Mile High Youth Corps. The idea was to let the public know that MHYC not only helped youths in our community, but that they actually helped to benefit the physical community itself, as well. They plant trees, build trails, help repair homes, create parks- and the list goes on and on. They are building the community, literally.
We think Greg and Jamie did a fantastic job, and we’re quite proud of the work they produced, and are excited to get this work out there- so stay tuned and look for it in your area.
