FUTURE NOW Mentoring Program
“One of the greatest values of mentors is the ability to see ahead what others cannot see and to help them navigate a course to their destination.” — John C. Maxwell
“The greatest good you can do for another is not just to share your riches but to reveal to him his own.” — Benjamin Disraeli
“The delicate balance of mentoring someone is not creating them in your own image, but giving them the opportunity to create themselves.” — Steven Spielberg
Connect college students with professionals in the media industry in order to help them build the foundations for their media careers. There are no mentoring programs that do this for college students, who want to pursue careers in the industry.
Thank you for your interest in partcipating in the FUTURE NOW Mentoring Program. This program is an exclusive opportunity for FUTURE NOW alumni, who have attended the FUTURE NOW Media & Entertainment Conference in the past, to develop one-on-one mentoring relationships with today's top media executives and professionals. We select the top twelve (12) applicants for the nine-month program, which begins in September and concludes in May. The twelve (12) mentees are matched with a mentor from the industry, based on their mutual interests and goals. Each mentor-mentee pair meets (in-person or virtually) for one-hour at least once a month. There are webinars and group activities as part of the program.
