Once Fellows are selected and matched to available projects and mentor-supervisors at PEM, two online orientations prior to their arrival in Salem, and intensive first-week onboarding once they arrive, connects them to program staff, their PEM department supervisors, and to one another.
Weekly intensive workshops with innovative professionals, supplemental off-site field trips, and other scheduled museum events give Fellows a place to be inspired, seek insights, and add their voices to the professional conversation.
Kevin Brown (Navajo, 2014 NAF) shares his point of view with PEM staff.
Receive Mentorship Support
Great conversations and long-lasting relationships only occur in supportive environments. We provide Fellows ongoing support and training before, during, and after the experience through initial orientations, regular communication, goal setting consultations, and mentor-style check-ins.
