Level Up: AIGA South Dakota Mentorship Program

The sign up for the AIGA South Dakota mentorship program is now closed. Thank you to all who participated!

AIGA South Dakota is excited to launch our first AIGA South Dakota mentorship program, Level Up. A typical Level Up mentorship session runs for 3 months, with an expectation of 2-4 hours per month. The format is very informal, to be determined by the mentorship pair. What do you want to learn? What do you want to teach?

Who can apply?

Level Up has been created for people who:

  • are creative professionals
  • work in a wide range of creative fields
  • have less than 3 years of experience and would like to be mentored, or
  • have more than 3 years of experience and want to volunteer as a mentor
  • are South Dakota residents
  • AIGA membership is encouraged but not required

How does this work?

After you submit the application, AIGA South Dakota will work to match up mentors with people with the same creative interests who would like to learn or grow in their craft. Mentors and mentees are encouraged to coordinate between themselves to determine the best method to connect, either in person or virtually.

AIGA will provide an introduction and some materials to establish a framework, but each mentorship pair is free to customize their approach. We expect mentorship pairs to commit 2-4 hours per month, for the three-month period.
