What is YCA's mentorship program?

This is a 3-month mentorship program where youth artists interested in learning more about their field of art will be paired up with a more experienced artist in the same or similar field. Mentors and mentees will meet up twice a month using their platform of choice, and by the end of the three months, there will be an in-person/virtual event where everyone can discuss their mentorship and the progress they’ve made towards their goals. 

When is the program taking place?​

The mentorship starts in October. More specific dates will be given closer to the start of the program.
