As an experienced, local professional, CreateAthon can use your help too!

CreateAthon at VCU’s success comes not only from the creative minds of its student volunteers, but also from the mentors that help guide them.

  • Advertising and marketing professionals are at the event to mentor the teams. This gives students insight and experience from someone already in the industry.
  • Mentors get the opportunity to meet some of the most dedicated and passionate students who will soon enter the workforce.
  • Call for local RVA professionals to act as mentors is in January.
