How to Help
Partner with Us
Together We Can Make A Difference. We work with corporations, schools, professional organizations, and youth-oriented organizations to mentor lasting life skills such as teamwork, discipline, leadership and critical thinking, all in a fun and nurturing environment! Looking to put on an event, or an ongoing series of classes and workshops? How about an internship program or competition? Pitch us… we’re all ears!
We change lives, one frame at a time. Help us expand our mission and support those we serve by providing equipment, facilities, and resources. As a 501(c)(3) charitable nonprofit organization, The Movie Institute gratefully accepts tax-deductible cash or in-kind donations from those with a desire to support young people with their exploration of creativity and training in vital life & leadership skills.
Do you work in the motion media industry? The Movie Institute offers a great chance to pass on your knowledge and inspire the next generation of industry professionals. We look for veterans in all aspects of film production to lend their expertise and teach their skills to kids and young adults. Our mentors train participants with respect, discipline and love in our moviemaking camps and workshops. As an MI mentor, you will be inspiring future directors, screenwriters, producers, composers, theatre-makers, and new media creators bring their stories to life, plus helping all kids have successful, purpose driven lives.
There’s a lot to do, and we have a small crew. We rely on our volunteers to make it all happen. For those who want to serve, The Movie Institute is a great place for individuals and groups to assist generally, or with a particular project or service need. You don’t need to know about filmmaking to make a difference. In addition to opportunities with one-day or week-long events and projects, we’re looking for help on our board and ambassador program, as well as general office support, social media, fundraising, and more.
