HELP US REMOVE BARRIERS TO CREATIVE AND ECONOMIC OPPORTUNITY!

Los Angeles County is home to Hollywood, the entertainment capital of the world.

The U.S. Media and Entertainment Market is the largest worldwide ($717 Billion). The M&E industry is comprised of businesses that produce and/or distribute motion pictures, television programs and commercials, streaming content, music and audio recordings, broadcast, podcast, radio, book publishing and video games.

Unfortunately, many students will never have an opportunity to enter these industries because music, media and entertainment career pathways are not offered in California K-12 Schools. Help us change this alarming reality!
