The PGA Mentoring Committee is dedicated to helping members advance their careers through professional mentoring. The Committee oversees the popular PGA Mentorship Program, which runs twice a year (October to March and April to September). The Program pairs up-and-coming producers or producers looking to transition into another field with experienced PGA members. The mentor-mentee pairs meet or have detailed phone calls/emails at least three times over the six-month mentorship period. Often these relationships last well beyond the official Program dates. The Mentorship Program has been successful pairing people in the feature film, television production, reality and new media genres.
The Mentorship Committee also runs the "Morning Mentor" series, where an established producer comes to the Guild to speak with a limited number of PGA Members. These sessions have featured successful producers, such as Mark Gordon, Bill Fay, Betsy Beers, Carlton Cuse and Damon Lindelof.
