Happy 2021 and our first blog of the year! We know that the start of this year has been a little rocky with the state of our nation on a constant roller coaster. Through this past year, the one thing that’s been a steady and a wonderful constant has been this organization, our programs and all of you, our wonderful OTL family consisting of Donors, Event Attendees, Mentors, Mentees, BOOSTers, Co-Chairs and Board Members! You’ve given us hope, purpose and a beacon of light when other things seem to be crumbling around us.
Mentorship Program Seeks Mentors
Our Mentorship Program is actively seeking Mentors for the 2021 season. We’ve had a wonderful influx of Mentee Applicants over the past month and are now at 96% capacity for MP5, which begins on March 1st! As Mentee applications continue to come in, we are in need of amazing Mentors to join the team!
What we know about these Mentees from the past 4 sessions is that they are looking for diverse perspectives on all aspects of living in NYC and working in the entertainment industry. Discussion topics include finding an apartment and a side hustle, how to successfully market yourself as a creative post-college, how to approach auditions and so much more! Each journey is individual and customizable and our Mentorship Co-Chairs work tirelessly on making sure each Mentor and Mentee are compatible and have a support system throughout their time together.
