• This mentorship is strictly for young creatives working in the advertising industry, not other industries.

• Book a session by clicking on your preferred mentor and picking an available slot.

• Show up on time to the Google Meet call. Whether you turn on your video or do an audio-only call is up to you and your mentor.

• Ask craft advice or career advice from the mentor.

• At the end of the call, thank them for their time and efforts.



• Don’t abuse this mentorship opportunity by pitching your business or services under the guise of ‘collabs’.

• Don’t flirt with female mentors, stalk, or be over-friendly with them.

• Be on time. Don’t ghost your mentors. If you can’t make it, please email them in advance.

• If you indulge in any of the above, Liam Neeson will find you and will kill you.

“Freely you have received, freely give.”

Mentorship is crucial. Even more so for fledgling creatives in the ad industry.

If you are an experienced ad professional, here’s an offer for you to pay it forward and give back to the community by mentoring the creative minds of tomorrow.

As a mentor, you would be making time for young creatives and sharing your knowledge, skills, and life experience to guide them towards becoming better. 

All we ask from you is an hour or two of your time once a month. Nothing more.

What do you get in return? Since BAD school is 100% free and zero-profit, we are unable to compensate you monetarily, but your service will contribute to the progress of the creative community.

Mentorship is a two-way street – we grow by helping others.   


If you’d like to be a mentor, please drop us a direct message on our LinkedIn page, and we will get back to you.
