Southern Exposure's One-on-One Mentorship Program offers youth artists, ages 16–21, the opportunity to develop and produce a project or series under the guidance of a professional artist mentor who works in an area or medium of their interest. The program offers youth artists, of all skill levels, a professional space and forum to work on their portfolio, to gain the skills to get into art school, or take their artistic practice to the next level. This year participants will meet entirely online.

Youth selected for this program meet with an artist mentor every week during the school year to share each other’s skills, creative pursuits and develop a project that will be on view to the public at Southern Exposure's gallery in May 2021. Youth artists also work with other artists in the program for informal critiques, and workshops.
