Trailblazing communications agency ComCo Southeast Asia has announced the new batch of apprentices of its award-winning Camp ComCo Mentorship Program.
The Camp ComCo Mentorship Program is a communications apprenticeship program designed to transform communication, marketing and multimedia arts students and fresh graduates into revolutionary practitioners of the industry. With its intensive and comprehensive talent incubation sessions and industry linkage programs designed by ComCo Southeast Asia’s pool of experts, Camp ComCo has been recognized for producing high-caliber young communications professionals since 2016, including alumni that work in the agency today.
Now on its 15th cycle, Camp ComCo is introducing the newest creative rebels – or ComCowans – to join its ranks who were selected because of their passion about the craft, hunger for learning, and the positive character to become elite visionaries to contribute to social change.
Khyle Ngo, Mark Timothy Evangelista and Narah Faigal (Bachelors of Arts in Multimedia Arts) from Mapua University are the digital and multimedia arts apprentices who will be honing their skills through disruptive graphic design work and visual creation. While Janillaine Platero, Enrico Miguel Rañoco, Mabel Villanueva and Shane Macalanda (Bachelors of Arts in Public Relations) from Pamantasan ng Lungsod ng Maynila and Olivia Ong (Bachelor of Arts in Communication, Minor in French) from Ateneo De Manila University are the brand communications apprentices looking to make their mark on PR and marketing.
The ComCowans are sorted into four mentorship houses, each named after an endemic and vulnerable species in the region. Ong and Villanueva are assigned to House Bearcat, Evangelista and Macalanda to House Flyingfox, Ngo and Rañoco to House Hawksbill, and Faigal and Platero to House Whaleshark. These houses will serve as their guide as they undergo the three phases of the Camp ComCo Mentorship Program: skills calibration, strategic communications immersion, and specialization elective. At the end of the program, the ComCowans will be put to the test as they compete in House Wars to showcase everything they learned from Camp ComCo.
As ComCo Southeast Asia celebrates its fifth anniversary this year, the agency looks forward to continue igniting talent through the Camp ComCo Mentorship Program and hone the skills of the next generation of communications trailblazers.
