Mentoring the Next Generation of Storytellers through Volunteerism and Service
SAG-AFTRA is dedicated to the education of fellow industry professionals and students, together with current and future union members.
Through the A Call To Arts initiative, SAG-AFTRA members set the goal of providing 1 million mentor hours by 2018.
In collaboration with industry colleagues and partner organizations, including universities, colleges, non-governmental organizations, associations and unions, this national effort was an incredible success.
Not only did the SAG-AFTRA mentors meet that goal, but they helped reach and inspire more than 350,000 young mentees.
Every great artist is inevitably asked, “What are your influences? Who inspired you?”
For the next generation of storytellers, the answer may be you.
Now, SAG-AFTRA’s President’s Task Force on Education, Outreach and Engagement is incorporating A Call to Arts into its national education and outreach campaign, reaching its 160,000 members and tens of thousands of pre-members and students across the country.
