AYUDA for the Arts' Mentoring Program gives scholarship recipients the opportunity to partner with professionals working in the arts field that they are pursuing. Mentors can give career guidance, valuable industry insight and opportunities, which can provide the student a greater understanding of the inter-workings of their intended profession through practical work experience.
AYUDA for the Arts believes that mentoring is an effective tool that engages scholarships recipients in positive learning experiences to help them to be more likely to succeed. By sharing their professional and life experiences, mentors serve as positive role models and help scholarship recipients aim at more sound career choices.
By providing financial assistance and mentoring to these students pursuing careers in the Arts, AYUDA for the Arts helps them realize their dreams while giving them an opportunity to use their talent to contribute to their families, communities and society-at-large.
