The Mentors program will foster a foundation for mentees to learn life skills, and commerce that will create opportunities for students to network with industry professionals. This program will provide mentees with the skills and knowledge for a thriving business, understanding the value of their craft and the industry itself. The program will also offer a place for full artistic expression and acceptance. When mentees complete this program they will have an understanding of the opportunities available to them as artist and will be focused on their passion before they began college. Through the use of mentors TCMF intends to develop leadership qualities and foster pride in mentees.
