Broadcast Music, Inc. hosted a tour and panel discussion for students from the Actors Fund of America program, Looking Ahead, on Tuesday, August 12, at the Los Angeles office.

During their visit, students were introduced to various career paths and learned about a myriad of opportunities within the entertainment and music industries. They also participated in a panel discussion with a select group of industry professionals.

Looking Ahead aims to help young performers and their families address the unique issues associated with working in the entertainment industry. The program supports young performers between the ages of 9–18 years old in developing the values, skills and confidence they need to make successful transitions to fulfilling adult lives. It was developed in cooperation with the Young Performers committee of the Screen Actors Guild and the American Federation of Television and Radio Artists (SAG-AFTRA).
