In Summer 2020 all of the designers at Anchor & Alpine took on a mentee from the NeON Summer program to help them work through a logo and online store set up (courtesy of our friends at Big Cartel) to help them take their first steps to a career in graphic design.

NeON Summer is a program of the New York City Department of Probation (DOP) in partnership with community-based providers who specialize in employment readiness, cultural enrichment, mentorship, educational opportunities, arts programming, and mental health/wellness services. The program offers participants the opportunity to explore career interests, develop work-readiness skills, and express themselves creatively through learning experiences designed to strengthen social, civic, and leadership abilities.
