The REAADY Foundation: Helping Students with a Dream to Face the Challenge and Achieve Success
The REAADY Foundation offers financial and educational support to assist in educating high school students in Performing Arts by offering scholarships for continuing education experiences in the Performing Arts, offering financial aid to the new forming REAADY Academy Students to earn their Associates Degree as they are graduating high school, and offering community initiatives like the
Open-Door Mentor program so that all students have the chance to succeed.
Additionally, one of the REAADY Foundation's core belief is giving back to the community through community outreach programs and initiatives. We will impart this belief in all Academy students to initiate positive change in their neighborhoods and to hopefully carry with them this positive sense of purpose throughout their lives because
Together United, means Together we are Successful.
The REAADY Foundation is a 501c3 organization created to support Performing Arts students and the surrounding community. Until the REAADY Performing Arts Academy’s operations commence, the REAADY Foundation anticipates offering scholarships for Performing Arts educational experiences outside of the classroom to help further students’ educational and artistic abilities, create initiatives to ensure that all students have a way to succeed in their career journeys, and provide opportunities to participate in community outreach programs.
Once the REAADY Performing Arts Academy opens its doors to Music, Dance, Theatre, Musical Theatre, and Culinary Arts students; the REAADY Foundation will additionally offer scholarships to Academy students who otherwise would be unable to afford the specialized program in collaboration with the Community College of Allegheny County whereby they can earn their Associate Arts Degree while earning their high school diploma . In addition, the Foundation will provide support for master teachers, master classes, various on and offsite workshops, materials and testing items, transportation to and from performances, and any additional school-related support for students’ development and day-to-day education.
The REAADY Foundation and the REAADY Performing Arts Academy share the following beliefs: we will give back to the community through community outreach programs, we will hopefully inspire our students to initiate positive change in their neighborhoods, and we will foster within our students the desire to carry this positive sense of purpose with them throughout their lives.
In collaboration with the REAADY Performing Arts Academy, the REAADY Foundation will assist students with every opportunity they have to prepare themselves for successful lifelong careers. Working together, the REAADY Foundation and the REAADY Performing Arts Academy will bring forth an unprecedented educational opportunity that will open the doors of higher education to many students and positively impact young people and the
future of our region.
