The Young Arts Mentorship Program is now accepting applications. I post about this every year. This mentorship program is for young arts ages 15 to 18 who are writers, dancers, musicians, filmmakers, artists, actors, and designers.
This mentorship program also offers fellowships. It’s the ultimate hook up for anyone wanting to have a career in the arts. A few years ago a friend of mine won and he received an all expense trip to Miami for a year! He was mentored by two professional photographers and even had an exhibit of his photographs.
This program is a big deal. Young Arts alum have gone on to win Academy, Tony, and Grammy awards. Exhibit at the Museum of Modern Art, have their films screen at Sundance and Cannes Film Festivals. Danced for Alive Haley and the New York City Ballet.
