Why George Clooney, Charlize Theron and Colin Kaepernick Turn to the Entertainment Industry Foundation for Their Charity Work

The mission of the Roybal Film and Television Magnet is to build a more inclusive pipeline of historically underrepresented, college and career ready students interested in the film and television industries.

In June 2021, George Clooney, Grant Heslov, and Bryan Lourd partnered with the Los Angeles Unified School District (LAUSD) to establish The Roybal Film and Television Magnet, located on the Edward G. Roybal Learning Complex in downtown LA, to launch in the summer of 2022. The school’s mission is to build a more inclusive pipeline of historically underrepresented, college and career ready students interested in the film and television industries. Over the next five years, we expect to impact nearly 500 students.

Roybal Film and Television Magnet offers students early exposure to career pathways, an immersive 9-12th grade curriculum that develops both hard and soft skills, professional internships, a foundational knowledge base about the industry, and certifications that are essential to securing jobs after graduation.
