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.
We help you explore your future
and how to get there...

Young performers have busy, complicated lives, and sometimes that can make it hard to spend time thinking about what you want for your future. That’s why Looking Ahead helps you do just that.

Whether you’re a younger performer trying to decide between public and home schooling, or you’re a teenager looking into colleges, Looking Ahead can help. We offer educational services such as visits to college campuses and help creating short and long-term educational plans. These plans help you think through interests and skills and how to apply them in educational settings. We also offer help and referrals for preparing for college exams and hold seminars that expose you to both entertainment and non-entertainment jobs, trades and careers.

Looking Ahead is here to help you explore your options, figure out the steps you need to take to get there, and build the future that’s right for you.
