Ray and Vivian Chew Announce The Power 2 Inspire Foundation Summer Internship/Mentorship Program

March 1, 2022 (Closter, NJ) – The Power 2 Inspire Foundation is excited to announce the 2022 launch of its Summer Internship/Mentorship program, starting the application process today. Applications are open now until March 31, 2022, at 6:00 pm ET.
Apply here.
In Spring 2022, The Power 2 Inspire Foundation will also present a Master Class series featuring virtual presentations and lectures every month. Each presentation and speech will come from some of the “best of the best” global professionals in the music industry. Master Classes will have limited spots available and open to the public soon.
In effect since 2020, during the start of the pandemic, Power 2 Inspire’s Summer Internship/Mentorship Program focused on gifted musicians/producers, singers/songwriters, and potential music business innovators who were ready to take over the world of music.
Initially, The Summer Internship/Mentorship Program was crafted to provide interns with an in-person internship experience, but COVID-19 pivoted the program to become virtual. Due to changes, the program consisted of virtual meetings three times a week with mentors, including panel-like discussions and Q&A sessions. Ultimately, the interns were assigned to a mentor to equip them with the right tools to move forward in the music business. Please find information on the program and our foundation on our website www.power2inspire.org.
