Give the Gift of Digital Mentorship

WHAT IS DIGITAL MENTORSHIP

Three 5-week online sessions--winter, spring, summer 2021--where participants collaborate and create music, music videos, and podcasts with professional, inspirational mentors.  Instead of bands, the participants will create “fams.”  At the end of each session, content will be shared on a youth-produced online streaming episode/event called “Willie Mae T.V.!”

$1000 = Bridge the Digital Divide: Help us “bridge the digital divide” and offer laptops, tablets, and hotspots so that all students have the opportunity to log in and rock out.

$5000 = Session Sponsor Superstar: As we program through the pandemic, gifts at this level help us meet the moment and offer tuition assistance and pay equity to our teaching artists and professional mentors for one 5-week session. At this level you will make sure that every student who wants a Digital Mentorship can participate, making sure that all students who want to log on and rock out can. Without your support at this level we wouldn’t be able to provide tuition assistance and equity wages for Teaching Artists.
