Streetlights has a commitment to forge Entertainment Industry careers for Post 9/11 Minority Veterans by starting a new level of training: ProductionVets.
In recent years employment needs for this severely low-income “community of brothers and sisters in arms” has grown urgent.
ProductionVets Job Training, Job Placement and Career Advancement program moves young Vets from financial distress to long term economic stability. Many have distinguished, even heroic, military records, yet are under- or unemployed. The goal is for Vets and their families to find the peace that comes from financial stability through one of the many careers behind-the-camera.
ProductionVets is unique in that it creates economic and social parity for the newest generation of Veterans for whom reintegration into the civilian workforce has not been easy. Post 9/11 Veterans accepted into the ProductionVets program receive a full complement of no cost Job Training, guaranteed Job Placement and comprehensive Career Advancement services in order to work behind-the-camera in Film, TV and Commercials. The program includes soft skills training, as well as intense Industry-directed vocational training. At the same time ProductionVets provides adjunct services tailored specifically for Veterans, whose issues are vastly different than nonveteran trainees. We serve Vets in all areas of life and in all the ways that would otherwise keep him/her from being successful by providing personalized case management.
