WHAT IS THE
GROWTH INITIATIVE?

The G.R.O.W.T.H.(Giving Real Opportunity With Talent & Heart) Initiative was created by 100 Roses From Concrete Founder/Chief Creative Officer Keni Thacker, former Program Creator of the J.Walter Thompson (now Wunderman Thompson) Young Commodores program in March of 2020. The program allows a select group of multicultural college students to gain advertising, and marketing experience over ten weeks. The .GIFs for short will apply the lessons taught by members of 100 Roses From Concrete and special guests to create branding solutions for a real-life non-profit clients as they learn to adapt to a new world post the coronavirus.
