The MHFA All-Star Mentorship Program seeks to address the unique environmental, systemic and wellness challenges for Black and LatinX inner city High School Graduates, who are interested in a career in fashion- across multiple disciplines.
This program will target recent inner city and suburban high school graduates achieving a minimum of a 2.5 GPA, who did not attend a school where creative enrichment or the arts were made available.
Each graduate accepted into the program will be paired with inspirational, active and tenured fashion industry All-Star mentors.
These All-Star mentors will be responsible for guiding mentees on their journey of self exploration. Each mentor will provide actionable steps on career navigation post-graduation. This program goes beyond aspirational mentorship. It will give mentees a practical action plan and direction in navigating their future careers and education in fashion.
Our All-Star mentors range across fashion disciplines – Fashion Design, Fashion Styling, Fashion Journalism, The Business Of Fashion, and Social Media. Our mentors will be assigned to groups of high school graduates in NYC, New Jersey, Philadelphia and Washington DC.
Each mentor will host a two day group workshop teaching a MHFA curriculum, with one of the days dedicated to 1:1 sessions with each mentee.
Applications open May 24, 2022 and will be accepted until August 15, 2022. Program dates are September 2022-May 2023.
