Cohort Captains

Paying it forward since 2015

Teams of four near-peer coaches—all COOP alumni—guide each cohort through the entire 200-hour apprenticeship. And they do it all on top of busy day jobs at local ad agencies and tech companies.

The Cohort Captains are COOP's X-factor, and undoubtedly the reason our program remains 100% free for new cohorts. In turn, Captains gain invaluable leadership and management experience, accelerating their own careers in the process. Many Captains have paid it forward two, three, or even four times.
