Rural/Community Youth ARTS Mentorship Program

Mentors Partnered with Youth ages 16 – 29

Programs must take place between October 2017 and June 2018

Arts & Cultural Industries (ACI) Manitoba offers a mentorship program for youth age 16-29 living outside Winnipeg but within Manitoba. Experienced artists working in rural communities are contracted to provide mentorship with an individual or small group of youth over a total period of five months.  Mentorship partnerships are aimed at a variety of artistic disciplines, including: Writing/Publishing, Museum, Film, Photography, Crafts, Multimedia, Design, Theatre, Dance, Music and Visual Arts with an artistic, administrative or technical focus. 

Projects may take place over any period of 5 – 8 months between October and June as long as the program guidelines are met:

  • Mentors & Mentees must be willing to commit to a minimum of 5 direct contact hours per month working together on their artistic pursuit, for a total of five months (25 hours).
  • The Youth mentee, under their mentor’s direction, must commit an additional 5 hours per month fulfilling volunteer, community and networking opportunities. (25 hours total)
  • A mentor may work with 1 to 3 youth (simultaneously) depending on the age of the youth.
  • Where possible, mentors and mentees should apply together.
  • Programs may be custom designed to take place over a longer timeline as long as the hourly commitments are fulfilled and the program is completed by June 30, 2017.
  • Mentors will receive an honorarium of $1,500 based on the time commitments above. 

2017-18 applications will be available in September 2017.
