In 2014, USITT launched the Board Mentorship Program to create an opportunity for future leaders to learn more about nonprofit governance and servant leadership. With feedback from former participants, the program has refocused to become a flexible, 12-18-month long Mentorship with particular emphasis on finding the future leaders of USITT and investing in their growth. This opportunity serves as a bridge to connect emerging professionals with current leaders in the theatre and entertainment industry, as well as an opportunity to learn new skills that will help the Mentee develop valuable expertise on their journey to nonprofit leadership. This opportunity is best suited for members with 2-5 years of professional experience but could be a valuable addition to graduate level study for the right individual. This Mentorship will provide an open door to the Executive Director and board members of USITT, as well as, positions on Committees and a greater understanding of nonprofit governance structures.
