Does the idea of finishing high school make you a little nervous? Wondering how you'll survive being an official adult? You're not alone! Everyone feels a bit uncertain about the future at this stage in life and we're here to help ease your worries. Join us at this month's College Prep where we'll discuss the responsibilities of adulthood and how to tackle them, managing your personal life on and off campus, dating and relationships, how to make new friends, campus resources and coping strategies. We'll be meeting on a college campus this month!

Looking Ahead In-person Event Procedures and Policies

  1. Leave work at the door. In an effort to create a safe, non-competitive environment at all Looking Ahead events, kids and parents are asked not to speak about booked jobs, auditions or industry work-related topics with each other.
  2. Online registration is required for all events. Members can only register for events that are for their age group 9-11, 12-14 or 15-18.
  3. Register for events at least 24 hours beforehand. Showing up without a reservation is not allowed.
  4. Only Looking Ahead members can attend events. Friends, siblings and other non-Looking Ahead members cannot attend events. Looking Ahead staff will not be held responsible for supervising youth not in the program.
  5. Arrive on time. Members arriving to events after 15 minutes of the start of the event will not be guaranteed participation with the group.
  6. Parents must check in/our with Looking Ahead staff. This will allow staff to keep accurate count of all members. Parents must check in at drop off and pick up= before leaving.
  7. Notify staff if someone else will be picking up your child. If another family member or friend will be picking up our child, please inform staff to ensure your child’s safety.
  8. Events are for youth only unless otherwise stated. Looking Ahead seeks to create an environment where youth can foster friendships with their peers.
  9. Youth must remain with the group for the entirety of an event. Staff need to know youth’s whereabouts at all times.
  10. Event Cancellations. If you can no longer attend an event for which you are registered, login to your Member Dashboard and cancel your registration to avoid a strike on our account. 


Members will obtain a strike if they do not attend an event for which they are registered and do not cancel their registration beforehand. 3 accumulated strikes will result in your young performer being ineligible to register for events for 30 days. We understand that plans change, but ask that if you are registered for an event and can no longer attend, that you cancel your registration via the Looking Ahead website the day before the event by logging into your account online. This small courtesy will create space to allow waitlisted members to register for events and will also give accurate head counts for our community partners who are graciously hosting our tours and events.
