Collaborate With A Leading Communications Agency on Special Projects


With the elevated role of media and technology in the lives of consumers, we cannot afford to wait and see what's next. At Initiative, we invest in the future to uncover what's next now.

We invite current AAF college chapter members to apply for a seat on our Future Board, a creative think tank established to give voice to the rising stars in our industry. Members will receive hands on marketing communications experience, self-development training and exposure to industry executives during their tenure on the Future Board. U.S. Future Board members may also interact with other members serving on Future Boards in Europe and Latin America. This is a great opportunity to be a part of a worldwide agency's creative process!

Student activities to include: spring/summer internships, recruiting, campus keynote speaking opportunities, interaction with agency execs and possibly clients, industry immersions/shadowing, leadership building seminars, and more!
