AATE Mentorship Program

The goal of The American Alliance for Theatre & Education (AATE) Mentorship program is to provide mentors to AATE members. The Mentorship program is a year-long cohort of mentees (emerging careers or career changers) and mentors (those who have been identified as having exceptional experience in the field). The mentor/mentee relationship focuses on five of the six core values for AATE: providing leadership, ensuring professionalism, promoting quality, creating community, and championing diversity.

The program will be managed virtually so all those interested are encouraged to apply.
