Consider Mentorship

You don't have to be an expert to make an impact, you just need a willingness to share your skills, experience, knowledge, and expertise.

Mentorship can close the gap between career stagnation and professional advancement while creating critical connections the entertainment industry is built on.

CAN I BE A MENTOR?

We all remember what it was like starting out in this industry. Wether you are a seasoned professional at the top or your game or a peer just few steps ahead on your career path, being a mentor is about willingness to teach what you know and help guide someone in their professional development and being a good role model.

TIME COMMITMENT

Once a match is made, it's up to you and your mentee to decide how much you'd like to interact. Whether it's daily, weekly, monthly, in-person, via email, phone, Zoom or Skype the needs of each match will vary. You can create your own structure or we can help facilitate as well. We ask you to meet with your Mentee a minimum of three times within a three month period and the rest is up to you!

CAN I MENTOR MORE THAN ONE PERSON? 

Yes! We would love for you to share your talent and knowledge to anyone who can benefit. You can mentor multiple people at once or one at a time, 

MATCHING WITH A MENTEE

Mentors can get to know potential Mentees through their application profiles or an initial meeting and decide who you think would make a good match based on interests, needs, personality, asks, schedule and availability.   

HOW DO I GET STARTED?

Whether you're just starting out or you are already a professional, anyone can benefit from a Mentor's unique experience.
