Boise, Idaho – One Stone, a student led and directed experiential service nonprofit, launched Two Birds at the Bank of the Cascades’ nonprofit education event earlier this week. Two Birds, a One Stone social venture, is a creative services agency run by high school students in the Treasure Valley.
Two Birds will provide creative strategy, millennial audience marketing, street team services, facilitated design thinking and communication tools to clients from the nonprofit and private sectors. Profits from Two Birds will be reinvested into One Stone to advance its mission to make students better leaders and the world a better place.
“Two Birds is a great platform for students to gain real-world experience with the skills we learn in One Stone—creativity, collaboration, empathy, project management and design thinking,” explained Boise High School senior, Kobi Theiler, who serves as Two Birds’ creative director. “Plus, we grew up with technology, so it’s natural for us to use it to help people share their stories.”
Bank of the Cascades approached Two Birds about producing a video after seeing some creative work at a soft launch event in February, becoming Two Birds’ first client.
Mike Mooney, Bank of the Cascades president, shared his experience as a first time client, “Our request was to create a video that demonstrates how life would be in the Treasure Valley without our not-for-profit networks, a very challenging task,” he explained. “The One Stone/Two Birds team listened, produced a story board, and then a high-quality video that far exceeded our expectations.”
Additional Two Birds’ clients include Ahrens DeAngeli Law Group, iVinci Health, the Idaho Youth Ranch and the J.A. and Kathryn Albertson Foundation’s #BreakerBoi project.
