For the past 20 years, Reel Works has been a leading arts organization that mentors, inspires and empowers underserved NYC youth to share their stories through filmmaking, creating a springboard to successful careers in media and beyond.
MediaMKRS is a partnership between Reel Works and the NYC Mayor’s Office of Media and Entertainment, the City University of New York, media companies and unions and to train, credential and prepare talented New Yorkers for careers in media and entertainment.
The MediaMKRS program was born out of a vision that to address the crisis of inclusion in the media industry, we need to build a consortium of educators, industry, labor, government and philanthropy to address systemic barriers and build pathways from classrooms to careers in
the film and television industries. Additionally, MediaMKRS aims to provide an avenue for both traditional and non-traditional students with production experience and hands-on skills to more effectively demonstrate their skills and abilities to potential employers through digital credentials.
The Digital Credentialing Specialist will play an integral role in accomplishing our mission. BIPOC, people with intersecting identities - LGBTQIA+, women and non-binary people, people living with disabilities and others with lived experience being part of marginalized communities are strongly encouraged to apply.
