Create meaningful change in 24 hours.
WHAT IS IT?
Creative Day for Social Good is a collaborative event where design and PR students from local colleges partner with creative professionals to provide much-needed communication and design materials for not-for-profit agencies.
WHY DO WE DO IT?
By understanding the value of real-world experience and the impact of working directly with mentors, Intertek Catalyst began hosting this event in collaboration with Capacity Canada and Conestoga College five years ago for students from the college. The experiences for each student are immeasurable and often lead to exciting careers within the industry.
WHAT DOES IT MEAN FOR STUDENTS?
At the end of 24 hours, students have worked directly with clients on their needs and have benefited from working with professionals in the industry. Each project is unique, allowing each student to problem solve and work within a team to deliver results. The student’s involvement aligns with their overall program requirements and counts towards their degree.
WHAT DOES IT MEAN FOR COMMUNITY?
The charities that take part from across Canada receive much needed promotional materials, and a design and PR service catered to their specific needs. By working with the students and creative professionals, they get to voice their challenges, assist in messaging and leave with exciting, fresh and dynamic new communication assets to incorporate into their next big strategy.
