The Actors Fund’s Looking Ahead program was created in 2003 in partnership with SAG-AFTRA to work with young performers between the ages of 9 and 18, helping them develop the values, skills and confidence they need to make successful transitions to fulfilling adult lives.  The honorees are leaders in the entertainment community who live the program’s core values of growth, education, leadership and community service.

Looking Ahead is co-chaired by Fred Savage, a former young performer (“The Wonder Years”) turned director/producer, and Sharon Lieblein, a freelance casting director and former head of casting at Nickelodeon.
