Cutie-Q Youth Modeling is a parent run, non-profit 501(c)3 in New Mexico with the primary goal to promote and build youth modeling in a safe, age-appropriate environment through guidance, support, mentorship, and education.
Cutie-Q is not an agency. Aside from an application fee and nominal dues (based on membership and board agreement) to offset operating costs, Cutie-Q takes no commissions from paid modeling jobs.
Member families are no longer required to contribute work hours to help operate and manage the co-op, though volunteer hours are appreciated and allow Cutie-Q to offer more opportunities for the models. New member dues for 2020-21 will be about $80.
Models are encouraged to take advantage of the many opportunities Cutie-Q offers to gain training and experience. Training and experience are big pieces in allowing models to move up through the levels of membership, from beginner to professional. Professional level models will have more advantages and opportunities in growing their careers.
