"Yes, Yes, I want to Mentor! What exactly will I do? How long is the Program?"
Our year long Mentoring Program is unique in that it is driven by Cultural Arts Awareness.
Social Butterfly Foundation Mentoring Program helps foster Cultural Arts by partnering with our local Community Art Centers to sponsor monthly outings with Mentors & Mentees.
With your help, we can create awareness in the importance of Arts education, provide personal encounters between diverse individuals and expose our mentors to the rich talent within our community.
Once a month, we ask that Mentors support our initiatives by taking mentees to sponsored events that are hosted by our community partners.
Examples of Sponsored Outings:
Museum / Art Exhibits, Jazz Encounters, Dance Concerts, Theatrical, Performances, Dining Experiences
Our 12 month mentoring program runs concurrently with each mentees' Arts Appreciation curriculum.
During Arts Appreciation, Mentees participate in introductory educational classes sponsored by our performing arts community. Unlike the other components of our curriculum, Arts Appreciation take place off-site from our Mentees training base. Therefore we seek the support of mentors to assist with transportation to:
Theatre Workshops / Classes, Dance Workshops, Music Lessons, Art Lessons, Creative Writing
