Our student mentorship program connects up-and-coming creatives with local businesses and professionals. Students who participate can shadow a local business to explore the field or meet with an established creative pro for career advice. We also host an annual portfolio review to help students and recent grads get their books in tip-top conditions.
We believe the best shop to work with is one close to home! If you live in Springfield or the surrounding areas, SGFC can help connect you with the right agency for your project.
