The AIGA Chicago Mentor Program offers creatives from across disciplines a safe space to gather and share insights, experiences and resources. With the support from our community, we are able to curate our mentor programming. This program helps guide and grow designers at any level of experience through focused mentor groups that are based on our community’s needs.
Our greater mission is to unite and empower our community through affordable and accessible continued education. If you’re interested in tapping into existing knowledge, make sure to check out our next Mentor Program session.
