PAY IT FORWARD ALL-CAREER LEVEL MENTORSHIP PROGRAM
Fostering relationships across career levels is key to thrivability and professional success.
The mentorship and networking wing of the CRAFT Institute, Pay It Forward is designed to help scholars and artists expand their networks and share knowledge and resources that lead to professional growth and advancement.
The Pay it Forward Mentorship Program is officially launching in January 2021.
THERE ARE TWO WAYS TO PARTICIPATE IN PAY IT FORWARD:
1. As a Mentor/Mentee (2-Year Commitment)
Based on your goals, field, and other areas of interests, we’ll match you with a well-suited mentor or mentee. You’re encouraged to do at least one check-in per month via phone, email, and/or the video platform of your choice. But of course, the relationship and how much you want to get out of it is up to you.
