EMPOWERING THE CREATIVE.
DISRUPTING THE BOUNDARY.
BRIDGING THE GAP.
Disruption is the core of who we are.
When the typical university education wasn't practically preparing students for their futures, that's where Relevant Youth was born. Our agency was created to bridge the gap from classroom to career by giving students meaningful, irreplaceable, hands-on experience before entering the job market.
Our organization exists at the intersection of an advertising agency, a creative outlet and an educational incubator to give students the freedom to fail and the space for self-exploration. We're about all things innovative, disruptive and creative.
WHAT YOU WANT TO KNOW.
Once again, we're a student-run creative agency based in Columbia, MO, comprised of mostly students from the University of Missouri.
We have students of all majors, backgrounds, and passions.
There's a space in our agency for analytics and art, creative and computation, leadership and logistics. Our goal is to extend education beyond the classroom. We equip students with the necessary skills and experience they need to be competitive professionals in any industry.
WHY DO WE EXIST?
The current undergraduate education system stifles talent.
Students are not given adequate opportunities to sharpen their talents to curate strong portfolios. Relevant Youth's purpose is to shift the narrative around traditional education and give students the platform to prepare
them as professionals.
Students are placed in teams where they function in a role which most aligns with their talents and ambitions.
At RY, we work with real clients who have real problems that need real solutions.
During their time at RY, students tackle a diverse breadth of work from campaign strategy to in-depth analytical research.
OUR EXEC BOARD.
Our Executive Team oversees all logistics of company functions while also holistically mentoring and investing in our members.
