Warner Bros. has been a pioneer in the mentoring movement in Los Angeles and is a proud recipient of several commendations from the City of Los Angeles honoring our mentoring outreach program.
Founded in 2000, the Warner Bros. Mentoring Initiative has served more than 400 mentees who live in South Los Angeles. The mentees, students 13-21 years of age, are brought to the Studio twice a month during the nine-month academic year and are paired with employee volunteers to build self esteem and confidence, as well as learn and refine life skills. Mentees are also encouraged to explore future job opportunities at the Studio in areas such as finance, technical operations and facilities management. Additionally, mentees are eligible to apply to the Studio for a $500 scholarship upon graduation from high school to use toward secondary education expenses. The Studio’s community partner in the youth mentoring program is Youth Mentoring Connection.
