We are working with our corporate partners to create a national program that provides at-risk and homeless lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender, queer, and questioning (LGBTQ) youth with a chance to learn about the career opportunities that exist in the corporate world. Young people will be provided with a holistic day of shadowing professionals in all areas of a company, culminating with a panel discussion with LGBTQ employees from various departments and backgrounds. Corporations will be selected based on professional relationships and/or partnerships with The True Colors Fund; a demonstrated commitment to non-discrimination of LGBTQ-identified professionals is imperative.
Our Raise You Up Community Youth Program provides LGBTQ youth who are at risk of or are experiencing homelessness an opportunity to learn about career opportunities in the theatre industry. In partnership with Tony Award® winning Broadway show Kinky Boots, we have brought Raise You Up to LGBTQ youth in New York City, Nashville, Detroit, Houston, and more!
