About

The Creative Outpost is a non-profit 501c3 organization located in Little Falls, New York, creating opportunities and skills training for the media, film, and technology industries in Upstate New York.

The Idea

The Creative Outpost is a non-profit 501c3 organization working in the workforce development sector to propel economic growth and sustainability by providing career pathways for up-skilling workers in a changing economy and empowering low-income youth with trade skills for employment in the media, film, and technology industries.

The Creative Outpost’s mission is to build a skilled-trades workforce of content creators supporting technology, media, and film industries for a stronger Little Falls, NY economy by decreasing the skills gap in middle-skill occupations that require education beyond high school—but do not necessarily require a four-year college degree.

This person-centered approach to economic development dovetails into Opportunity Zone investments, local film industry interest, and school programs tailored to content creation, specifically: STEM (science, technology, engineering, and mathematics) enabling the next generation of innovators, media, arts, and technology curriculums.

The organization is focused on creating career pathways that empower individuals with on-the-job training in the areas of robotics for motion platforms and special effects, AI for marketing and scriptwriting, pre and post-film production, editing, cinematography, videography, storytelling/scriptwriting, scoring, sound, lighting, copywriting, narration, etc. that provide a level of educational attainment critical to providing a qualified workforce for emerging industries.

The ultimate mission of the organization is to create entrepreneurship and economic opportunities for our low-income population that struggles to climb the economic ladder—and to attract business investment in the community from organizations seeking work-ready employees.
