NATAS/SF Norcal Mentor Match Program Unites Students and Early Career Journalists With Industry Experts

Do you need a little extra feedback, or a little nudge that might lead your stories to the next level?

The National Academy of Television Arts and Sciences San Francisco/Northern California Chapter ‘Mentor Match’ program pairs up and coming journalists with experts in the industry. 

All NATAS members are eligible as it’s a perk of your annual dues. 

For a $15 annual student membership, you can participate in our Mentor Match program. 

Austin Castro was able to land his first reporting job in Eureka after getting some great tips from his mentor. 

“It wasn’t too long ago that I was a soon to be graduating college student,” said Castro. “Thanks to the Mentor Match program I was able to get paired up with my now mentor Devin Fehely at KPIX and he’s been such a tremendous help.”

Through the program students can receive one on one mentoring, tips and tricks to make it in the business, and thoughts on possible Emmy® Awards submissions with feedback.
