Mentors & Coaches

Perhaps the most important component of ACT-SO is a year-long ENRICHMENT PROGRAM which will:

1. prepare participating students for the Regional Competition that occurs annually during the month of March or April;

2. prepare students for the National Finals in July;

3. expose students to cultural experiences that will raise their horizons and enrich their lives.


A volunteer coach or mentor may be assigned one student or one group of students whom they will:

1. assist in preparing for a particular competitive category

2. assist with the personal elements of auditioning such as decorum, dress, stage presence and projection – or –

3. expose to cultural experiences outside of their home and school environments.
