The three-month mentoring program is open to university students in their final year looking to work in art direction, copywriting, advertising, PR, media or digital.

Youngbloods Queensland chairperson, Tom Walter (pictured) said the program was a unique opportunity to learn from some of Brisbane's best talent: "We've had mentors from Clemenger BBDO, Ikon, Junior and SapientNitro come on board so the range of experience we've been able to offer in the first year of this program is incredible," says Walter.
"Having a mentor helps to bridge the gap between university and working life, and is a great way to make contacts within the industry."
