Looking Ahead is a program of The Actors Fund created to help professional young performers and their families thrive amid the unique challenges of working in the entertainment community.
WHAT WE DO
Five kinds of activities to help you succeed.

The Actors Funds' Looking Ahead works with professional young performers, ages 9 through 18, who live in Southern California.

Our goal is to help you and your family thrive amid the unique challenges of working in entertainment, which can include things like balancing family and friends with school, work and auditions; figuring out which kind of school works best for your family; making new friends or connecting with other parents; or just needing to get away from the business for an afternoon and be a teenager.
