Why should I be a mentor?

Mentoring is a rewarding experience which can be hugely beneficial to a young person. Your insight and first-hand experience of the new media and entertainment can help get them work ready, improve their confidence, and bolster their resilience. For someone who is interested in the new media and entertainment industry, but may not have come across the right opportunities, your advice and encouragement could be life changing.

Our Black Talent programme connects 18 – 30-year-olds with volunteer mentors from new media and entertainment experts around the world. The programme our mentors offer a first-hand view of what it is like to work in the new media and entertainment industry.

The search is on for our amazing media mentors.

We are currently looking to recruit 100 mentors around the world to support Black Talent programme. We need volunteers from across the new media and entertainment industry to mentor their time and experience. So, if you work in acting, broadcasting, digital marketing, content writing, artist, journalism, video games, radio, or film production, we want to hear from you! If you work in the finance and investment for new media and entertainment sector you also have lots to offer, so please get in touch.

How it benefits you, double bottom line gains.

Mentorships do not only benefit the mentee involved. Mentors develop skills in leadership, listening and communication, lateral thinking, and coaching. It is also an opportunity to see things from new perspectives.

ForeMedia Group will provide you with your initial training at an induction session. This will ensure you know what is expected of you and prepare you for your mentorship.

Your mentorship will not be too time intensive. You will be expected to meet your mentee once a month over a 12-month period. This will be worked out and agreed with you to fit into your schedule.

Mentoring a young person is rewarding
