The Digital Pathways Initiative (DPI) announces the formation of a new team to launch fellowship for 20 students that will offer Connected Cloud Campus to Virtual Hollywood employment through hands-on technical instruction and project-based learning using the latest digital technology to create original content. Students will discover their innate artistic abilities while learning professional media applications that will help them secure sought-after jobs in entertainment. Our goal is to identify Rock Stars & Super Stars for precise placement in the creative-tech economy with living wages, and embedded with executive-level training for potential start-up capabilities. Our team is in discussion with JP Morgan Chase to enable our students to provide support to their communities at large through Reverse Mentoring.
