Young Filmmakers Academy is a respected, award-winning nonprofit youth organization dedicated to the principles of diversity, inclusion, teamwork, social awareness and education. Our students learn much more than how to make movies. They learn organizational skills, responsibility, focus, working together on something that is bigger than the sum of its parts. Our staff and board exemplify these morals and convictions.

As a committed professional staff and volunteer board of directors we value:

  • The transformative power of creative expression.

  • Making youth voices the center of what we do.

  • Transparency, collaboration and accountability to the youth and communities we serve.

Our board represents a range of industries and areas of expertise--from financial services to youth development to professional filmmakers and we are always seeking new community members eager to bring their own unique talents to our powerful mission.

Prospective board members can look forward to a welcoming environment and hands-on experience:


  • Contributing to quarterly board meetings

  • Shaping our strategic direction to aid in the organization’s mission

  • Supporting our fundraising goals through outreach and a personal financial commitment

  • Celebrating our mission at fun community events

  • Connecting with young filmmakers in our community
