Reel Families for Change is seeking participants to fill out their Screen Executives’ Care Structure Survey. Reel Families is on a mission to bring sustainable production practices to sets across the country, but missing data on workplace culture norms, access solutions, and worker support infrastructure in the American screen industry makes it difficult to do quickly. Please consider filling out this survey to contribute to this industry-shifting data. Once completed, share it with peers to gather as many perspectives as possible. Learn more and take the survey.



Materials for the Arts in Long Island City is seeking volunteers! Right now, with a severe staffing shortage they are looking for some volunteers who can help them in the warehouse. Would you be able to help? Or do you know someone that could stop by on a Monday, Wednesday or Friday between 10:00am and 5:00pm? They have certain special onetime projects as well as ongoing volunteer projects. Folding fabric, organizing bins, or putting things out on shelves. The vibe is good and they always play great music. Contact the Volunteer Coordinator at if you are interested.



The “Made in NY” Post Production Training Program 
is a free skills training program serving low-income New Yorkers and leading to jobs in the booming New York City post production industry. Participants with previous production experience will receive five weeks of industry-informed training in video editing and visual effects software, followed by job placement and on-the-job training with local post production companies that specialize in animation, editing, motion graphics, and visual effects. They are actively seeking employers to partner with us to provide entry-level job opportunities for program graduates. For more information, please visit or contact Ryan Penny, Program Director at



The Women in the Arts & Media Coalition is looking for a few great volunteers and apprentices! Are you interested in making a difference in how women are represented and perceived in the arts and by the media? They are looking for new brains, hearts, and energy for their major committees: Communications, Membership, and Development. If you’re not already a member of one of their member orgs (check the list on our website at– NYWIFT is one of the member orgs!), you might be eligible to be an apprentice. Email them at and they will send you some questions to get you started!
