“Leo Burnett was proud to partner with the AAF to bring the AdCamp program to Chicago. We were beyond impressed with the level of talent exemplified from the high school students selected to participate in the program. We had a great time interacting with the students, leading classroom activities and industry immersions, as well as hosting job shadowing opportunities. This was a wonderful way for us to engage our community and future talent pool by helping them explore the variety of careers the advertising industry has to offer." —Michele Bolanowski, Associate Director Recruiting, Leo Burnett
