Arts Out Loud is a 501c3 non-profit organization dedicated to the enrichment of the lives of LGBT youth, ages 16 to 22, who aspire to a career in the arts. Our goal is to develop our mentoring program, provide financial assistance, and offer opportunities for community networking.
Phase One of our goal is to launch 'Discover Out Loud,' a program which pairs young LGBT artists with a mentor in their field. Mentorship pairings will be live and in-person, or online, depending on the location of the mentee and the availability of a professional artist mentor in their area. Each mentor is obligated to work with their mentee for one year, meeting regularly and providing feedback over the course of the mentorship.
'Discover Out Loud' will kick off in Pittsburgh, PA - our headquarters - and in Los Angeles, CA, where there has been an abundance of support and mentorship requests. Eventually, Arts Out Loud would love to have mentorship pairings in every metropolitan area across the US.
Your donation today will help fund the launch of the 'Discover Out Loud' program, and give young LGBT artists the guidance and support they need to succeed.
