Endeavor Impact has partnered with Michael B. Jordan and others to launch a virtual summer education program for participants from marginalized communities and those outside of major entertainment markets.
The Summer Series program will take the place of Endeavor Impact’s Fellowship Program, which aimed to provide jobs, mentoring and education programs within the company to 42 fellows each year. That program had to be put on hold in its first year because of the coronavirus outbreak.
The virtual program set to launch today will be available to participants in Jordan’s Outlier Society Fellowship Program, which also aims to open doors to entertainment industry careers. The Endeavor Impact series, which runs through Aug. 24, is also available to students in the HBCU in LA program run by Entertainment Industry College Outreach Program, a nonprofit program that facilitates entertainment industry internships and fellowships for students from across the country. Endeavor said more than 1,000 participants had registered for the Summer Series.
