Approaching its 4th year, iCR8, The Marcus Graham Project’s summer bootcamp, is specifically designed to provide diverse aspirants in the field of advertising, PR & marketing with the exposure and experience necessary to solidify careers within the industry. The summer long boot camp consists of a topical case study and concept development initiative focused on creating research-based solutions to social issues.
The boot camp team will form themselves into a pop-up agency that they will run for the summer, as they manage the clients that they will partner with. The team provides pro-bono consultancy for a select non-profit organization. The 2012 boot camp team will be responsible for creating a get out the vote campaign for non partisan organization Rock The Vote.
The MGP Boot Camp is an unpaid training program. Initiates who don’t reside in the Dallas area will be provided with MGP arranged housing options. MGP will also assist in travel arrangement to and from the city of Dallas, for those who do not live in the area.
Participants are responsible for their own meals, entertainment and hospitality/ transportation, though MGP and partner organizations will do their best to minimize this expense.
