Streetlights mission is to assist talented and motivated young adult minorities, many economically and socially disadvantaged, to achieve long term economic stability and career success. Since 1992 Streetlights has been bringing ethnic diversity to the behind-the camera-world of Feature Film, Television and Commercial production.
To accomplish true diversity in the Entertainment Industry, we believe that a minority talent pool must be created to provide companies with ethnically diverse crew members from a range of job categories – from Gaffer to Grip, from Production Assistant to Producer. To that end, Streetlights breaks them into this creative and well-paying business through entry-level Production Assistant Training.
As a Job Training, Job Placement and Career Advancement organization, our ultimate goal is to assist our graduates in advancing from entry level Production Assistant to management track positions and Union crews—and ultimately into the behind-the-camera fields which interest them and for which they show aptitude.
