There are two ways to be eligible for Looking Ahead:  

Union Members

Non-Union Members

If you have professional representation (agent/ manager) but are not a member of unions at this time, you can still become eligible for Looking Ahead! All you have to do is document the last two consecutive years of your professional income, showing that you have earned a minimum of $3,000 per year (This can be documented through tax returns, W2s, 1099s, contracts, or letters from employers, etc.).

A NOTE ABOUT THE LOOKING AHEAD WEBSITE: Our website is a family-based website, so parents must sign up for their young performers. Parents will hold the master account over their young performers' account, while the parents and their children will each have a user name and password. The parents control the access levels and determine how their young performers will navigate the Looking Ahead site.
