What is Leadership Council?

Leadership council is a monthly meet-up where Looking Ahead members come to make new friends, learn leadership and life skills, build self-confidence, and participate in fun and engaging discussions and activities. Looking Ahead parents meet simultaneously to listen to industry guest speakers and learn helpful tips and resources to help you navigate and balance your life within this unique world of entertainment.

Each meeting focuses on a different topic. We discuss topics related to self-esteem, teamwork, managing stress, cultural identity, building friendships, and so much more. Each age group and parents meets separately (ages 9-11, 12-14, 15-18). Meetings take place monthly from September-May. Leadership Council is FREE and dinner is provided at every meeting! To join, please fill out the attached application.

 Young Performer Pick-up Policy

The safety and well-being of our young performers is our highest priority. As such, please note that parents must be present and identified directly by a Looking Ahead Staff member or volunteer before they will be permitted to leave at the conclusion of each Leadership Meeting (8:00pm).

 Parents, we strongly encourage and invite you all to hang around after the meetings to chat and get to know the other families in our program but we ask that you please pick up your young performers from their respective meeting locations first before doing so. Additionally, this year the majority of our meeting spaces are being donated by SAG-AFTRA and we want to be courteous of their time and security costs and clear out of the rooms as soon as possible.
