Become a Mentor
BAYCAT strives to provide extended support to internship graduates. We match creative professionals with young career creatives who have similar career goals.
Mentor Our Young Adult Interns:
Internship is a 14 week training program that provides aspiring creatives with hands-on experiences to build their skills in all stages of production and prepare them for a career in the creative media industry. We are looking for industry professionals who want to work with recent internship graduates and help them catalyze their new skills. You will engage with your mentee twice a month for three months, supporting their career growth, job search, and network building.
Mentor Our Fellows:
Fellowship is a 12-week intensive program focused on exploring the process of producing a narrative series from development to distribution. The mentors meet weekly with fellows and support the fellows as they build their pitches and provide supplemental industry knowledge.
Mentor Our Youth:
As a volunteer for the Youth Film or Graphic Arts classes, you’ll work alongside resident instructors to support our students on a particular project. We ask mentors to commit to attending eight classes over the 12-week program.

Become a Corporate Partner
Through volunteerism, funding initiatives, employing our interns, and hiring our Studio to tell their stories, our corporate partners are helping to end racism and inequity. If you’re looking for a meaningful way to invest your team’s time or funds, contact us to see how we can build a partnership.
