Welcome to our Academy's 1st digital event experience!

We're excited to re-connect with our Creative Scholars

+ meet new ones from around the country!

This Workshop idea was originally designed for an

in-person fundraising event in Williamsburg, Brooklyn; 

but as the times shifted we decided to shift

& pivot along with it.

Operation Mentorship!

is a 1 month creative mentorship program that offers our Creative Scholars an opportunity to learn from

a Creative Mentor who currently lives in their purpose and is currently working within a career/field that the CS is highly interested in.
