Young Performers Get Together


Are you a Los Angeles-based young performer between 9 and 18? Looking for fun places to meet friends in between auditions, work and studying? Need to build up some community service credits for school?


Looking Ahead is a great place to start. Funded by AFTRA, Screen Actors Guild and The Actors Fund, Looking Ahead was created in 2003 to give young performers a place to be themselves, have fun, give back and get support in making a successful transition to adulthood. The program offers five kinds of services: social events, education planning, counseling, community service activities and leadership development.


Families of young AFTRA performers 9-18 only, who want to join or find out more about the program should go to or call Looking Ahead at 323-933-9244, ext 36.


Do you know where all of your Coogan money is? In California, money that cannot be deposited is sent to The Actors Fund, which has set up a website,, where you can check to see if you have money owed to you. In New York, the money is held by the State Controller’s Office, which can be reached at 518-474-4017 that’s unclaimed c-o-o-g-a-n, which is from the child actor, Jackie Coogan.


Information for this story was obtained from the spring 2010 AFTRA Magazine, that’s the American Federation of Television and Radio Artists.
