The 4A's High School Initiative 

The 4A's High School Initiative provides a pipeline of diverse talent, ensuring the future success of our industry. We have two New York City advertising high schools (IAM & MECA) that foster a culture of curiosity, intelligence  and know-how to fuel the creative class of the future. The program encompasses dedicated classes ranging from Intro to Advertising to Graphic Design. It also seeks to maximize industry engagement through speakers, off-sites to agencies, mentoring, competitions, networking events and internships (summer, fall and spring semesters).

Let's invest in them.

Let's make them better.
