|Looking Ahead is an innovative program of The Actors Fund, tailored to help young performers and their families address the unique issues associated with working in the entertainment industry. Looking Ahead supports young performers between the ages of 9 and 18 in developing the values, skills and confidence they need to make successful transitions to fulfilling adult lives. Looking Ahead was developed in cooperation with the Screen Actors’ Guild (SAG) and the American Federation of Television and Radio Artists (AFTRA) Young Performers Committee.|
