JL Legacy Fund Mentorship Engagement Program

24 Jan 2024 1:43 PM | Executive Director (Administrator)

Application Deadline: March 1, 2024

The JL Legacy Fund Mentorship Engagement Program is a participant-driven pilot program that connects a selected group of emerging New Brunswick creatives in film, visual art, photography, music, and theatre with established creative professionals who can provide expert level advice and networking opportunities to help them. With this program, the Fund seeks to identify and support emerging talent with a focus on diversity. This mentorship and guidance program brings together five mentees with their five mentors through in-person and/or digital channels.

The program spans ten months, beginning in March 2024 and running to December 2024. Selected mentees for the program will spend four hours a month with their mentors one-on-one, if approved by the JL Legacy Fund Mentorship Engagement Program. They will also attend specialized virtual workshops which include mental health and networking support with creative specialists. Each accepted mentee will receive $500 when their mentorship is successfully completed. Mentees should apply with a specific project that they are having challenges starting or completing.

If you have questions about the program, email the Jane LeBlanc Legacy Fund for a short consultation:

The Jane LeBlanc Legacy Fund is committed to diverse and inclusive representation. We encourage BIPOC, LGBTQIA2S+, and other underrepresented communities to submit to our programs.
