CP is thrilled to report that we've received a grant from the Center for Cultural Innovation to expand our mentorship program. We'll be launching the Next Gen All California Leadership Program this year, which will pair “next generation” leaders from underserved communities and/or ethnically specific presenting organizations, but not current CP members, with mentors from within the CP ranks. Details coming soon!
