Let’s all admit it…Youth hostels smell funny.

Still deciding what to do this Summer? Instead of slack-packing your way around Europe, why not get a jumpstart on your career, so you can start staying in places without bunk beds and shared bathrooms?

Young & Hungry is a creative content agency that you can take as a class and apply all the new stuff you’ve learned in a professional agency environment. Yep, you got it– that means real clients with real deadlines. You’ll work on teams that include students from several majors and yep, you’ll gain a ton of experience developing professional level ideas and executions AND present them to the client directly.

Still not sure? There’s also our famous potlucks, free bottomless cups of too-strong coffee and not to mention – a funky, dedicated space that makes it feel like you’re going to work at a cool agency instead of a classroom. Oh ya, you’ll also get portfolio boosting work and an extra gold star to stick on your resume. Sound good? Sign up soon – Summer spots are filling up fast!
