Tiffany Haddish Launches She Ready Internship Program For Foster Youth
Boss Chick and comedian Tiffany Haddish who grew up bouncing around from home to home as a foster child, created her own charitable foundation to give back.
On December 15th, Haddish launched the “She Ready” internship program for foster youth in California.
The new paid internship program will begin in the summer of 2021.
She announced the program in collaboration with her company, She Ready Productions, and Ready to Succeed.
The She Ready internship program will place youth that have been in foster care or youth programs in positions in media, arts and entertainment, per The Hollywood Reporter.
The internship is paid, provides close mentorship and a “suitcase” that is filled with resources the accepted applicants would need for their role.
Considering the applicants are coming from low-income backgrounds, interns will receive transportation stipends and be eligible for refunds for any work-related costs.
“I believe that children that come from different cultures deserve a chance to work in the industry and I would like people that look like me to be able to represent me too in the industry,” the 41-year-old comedian told The Hollywood Reporter.
Applications are currently live.
In addition to being a current or former foster youth or a recipient of youth care, you must be between 18 and 25 years old, be legally allowed to work in the U.S. and attend a community or four-year college in California.
Eligible applicants who aren’t chosen are still given opportunity in the form of invitations to industry and career events.
Haddish has a net worth of $6 Million. It’s a beautiful thing that she is now investing in giving back to foster youth.
