Am I a Mentor or Mentee?

Members can participate as a mentor or a mentee at any point in their career.

Mentors: Give back. Develop future leaders or assist a peer in acquiring new skills. (We recommend mentors have at least 5 years of business experience.) Please login at the top of the page and click here for a Mentor application.

Mentees: Benefit and learn from experienced and successful DC Ad Club members. Please login at the top of the page and click here for a Mentee application.
