In this completely free, application based program, you’ll gain valuable insight into the life of what it's like to be a professional artist while also receiving monthly one-to-one training from the comfort of your home.
PointePeople Mentees can apply to be mentored for the Winter Semester (January 2023 - May 2023).
HOW MENTEES ARE SELECTED
We’re committed to building a diverse and inclusive group of Mentees & Mentors. PointePeople Mentees are selected by PointePeople in collaboration with Mentors. We assess you on a number of criteria including, but not limited to, your goals for the semester and career aspirations. Moreover, to make this a successful relationship between a Mentor and Mentee, we lean on our Mentors to determine who will be the best match for them at that time. As the list of Mentors is limited and the application process is competitive, we highly encourage those who are not selected the first time to continue to apply for future semesters.
What is NOT part of the selection criteria is the following: race, color, religion, national origin, citizenship status, sex, gender identity or expression, sexual orientation, age, or disability or body type. Additionally, we do not choose Mentees based on their social media following.
- Work collaboratively with your Mentor to schedule monthly meetings
