Mentor Program


The T. Howard Foundation welcomes a new class of diverse, underrepresented, and underserved college students to its Internship Program each summer, as well as fall and spring.

A unique benefit for students participating in the Internship Program is being paired with mentors who share their career interests and goals.

Mentor Eligibility

Mentors must have at least two years of full-time, post-undergraduate work. Internship experience is not counted toward the two years of professional work experience.

While previous full-time work experience in the media and entertainment industry is preferred, it is not necessary for mentors to be currently employed in the industry.

Mentor Commitment

THF mentors agree to connect with their assigned mentee(s) at least twice per month, preferably bi-weekly, during the internship period. They also agree to participate in an informational interview with their mentee(s).

To learn more about the THF Mentor Program, we recommend watching this 12-minute THF Mentor Program Informational Webinar.
