About

The Careers in Entertainment Tour gives young people from underserved backgrounds an interactive, fun, and useful guide to working in the entertainment industry.

On the tour, you’ll hear from experienced industry professionals that make film and television happen. You’ll gain insight about what it takes to build a career in entertainment, network with mentors from the industry and peers in your area with similar goals, and meet entertainment companies looking for new, fresh perspectives. CIE will help you close the gap between your reality and your dreams of working in entertainment.

Founded by the Will and Jada Smith Family Foundation, the CIE experience creates access, introduces opportunity, and promotes inclusion for high school and college-aged youth who want to work in entertainment. CIE works from within the industry, leveraging our network of entertainment leaders to serve as guides. In support of President Obama’s My Brother’s Keeper initiative, CIE collaborates with city officials and local high schools, universities, and programs to find young people like you, who are interested in pursuing careers in entertainment.
