The Marcus Graham Project, the nonprofit designed to expose ethnically diverse men between the ages of 16 and 34 to the ad and media industries, has launched its second boot camp. This year's gathering of young men has taken form as agency Metathinq. You can meet the crew here. They'll be working on projects for Globe Aware, a non-profit organization that promotes cultural awareness and sustainability, and boot-camp sponsor AT&T.
But working on projects isn't all they're doing. They're also getting educational sessions from industry players. Check out this video in which the guys get a visit from Jason White, global account director for Nike at Wieden & Kennedy.
Other sponsors include TracyLocke, Wieden & Kennedy, MDC Partners, American Association of Advertising Agencies, Butler, Shine Stern and Partners, Interpublic Group, Sanders/Wingo, Buchanan Group, Richards Group, South Side on Lamar, Jon Genius and Demond Meek Photography.
