ISGB Mentorship Program

This summer the ISGB will kick off our pilot Mentorship Program. We have a group of experienced Mentors willing to offer their knowledge and support in one-on-one mentorships to a select group of ISGB members. A limited number of mentorships will be available in a variety of areas of interest, such as developing your personal style, selling your work, marketing yourself online, becoming an instructor, submitting your work to shows, writing tutorials, photographing your work, etc. 

The way the mentorships work is that the Mentors and their “Protégés” will have a session for getting to know each other, then meet twice a month for three months, by phone, facetime, email or any other method agreeable to both. The specific details, such as the length of these meetings, handling questions that arise between meetings, approaches to sharing information, images, etc. will be set by the individual pairs of Mentor and Protégé. At the end of the three-month period, there will be a final session to evaluate the mentorship, and both the Protégé and the Mentor will provide us with feedback to help us continue to develop the program. 

This summer’s pilot program will be at no cost to participants. Future mentorships will be offered at a nominal cost to the Protégés, to benefit the ISGB Education Programs. To participate in this pilot program as a Protégé, you must fill out an online application form.

The deadline for applying to the pilot Mentorship Program is June 12th. 

Participants will be notified by June 18th, and will receive The Mentorship Handbook with further details on the program. Mentors will be responsible for contacting their Protégés and setting up times and dates for meetings. If you have any questions, please contact our Director of Education, Ann Scherm Baldwin, at This e-mail address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it .
