In partnership with the GRAMMY Museum (GRAMMY U), this group mentorship program builds community amongst industry leaders, young adults, and potential talent. It is a yearly series of panel discussions on booking, tour management, production, and marketing.

#BEYONDTHEMAINSTAGE

A group of 50 diverse students of color, ages 14-22, participates in this six-month virtual program twice a year. Mentees are paired 2:1 with professionals and spend half the mentorship exploring job roles and responsibilities, then the next six months creating an action plan to apply for an internship, work at a live event, and more.

BLACK, LATINX, AND OTHER MARGINALIZED GROUPS ARE UNDERREPRESENTED IN THE LIVE ENTERTAINMENT INDUSTRY BUT SIGNIFICANTLY INFLUENCE LIVE MUSIC CULTURE. WE ARE BREAKING COLOR, RACE, GENDER, AND OTHER BARRIERS TO TURN THEIR INFLUENCE INTO AN IMPACT IN THE WORKFORCE.

COMMUNITY UPLIFTS AND HELPS YOU GROW. WE ARE BUILDING COMMUNITY BY CREATING SAFE, INFORMATIVE SPACES FOR YOUNG ADULTS AND TEENS TO DISCOVER UNTAPPED TALENT. WE BELIEVE THAT WHEN GIVEN THE OPPORTUNITY AND SUPPORT TO THRIVE, YOU'RE EMPOWERED TO LIVE OUT L!VE!

SYSTEMATIC BARRIERS MAKE IT HARDER FOR UNDERREPRESENTED TALENT TO BE CULTIVATED AND EMPLOYED. WE BELIEVE THAT WITH EXPOSURE AND ON-HAND EXPERIENCE, MORE DIVERSE TEENS AND YOUNG ADULTS WILL GRAVITATE TO CAREER PATHS IN LIVE ENTERTAINMENT PRODUCTION.
