A $100,000 Goal

This past year, Ready to Succeed recently launched two industry pathway programs – the She Ready Internship program focused on entertainment and media careers with actress and comedian Tiffany Haddish, who herself was raised in the foster care system. The second, a fellowship program connecting RTS scholars interested in public service work to internship opportunities at nonprofits across Los Angeles. Ready to Succeed also partnered with UCLA to provide dorm room supplies to 80 incoming freshmen impacted by foster care.

Now, RTS needs to raise $100,000 in funds to support its newest class of 25 Scholars. Your support will directly fund RTS’s unique programming and connect these Scholars to high caliber mentorship, training and career opportunities, enabling them to believe in and live out their dreams. 


RTS empowers youth impacted by foster care to graduate college, launch successful careers, and reach their full potential.
