Mission Statement

The Diamond in the Raw Foundation is a 501(C)(3) organization that is devoted to edifying and educating at risk teens about rarely exposed careers in the entertainment industry. We focus on athleticism, education, vocational, cognitive and social skills, by developing and expanding generation X and Y’s expectations and life coping skills for achievement.

Description

We accomplish our mission through our Sista2Sista shadowing program and the HIP/N/SMART mentorship programs and by collaborating with several other existing agencies such as the Gwen Bolden Youth Foundation, Los Angeles County Probation Department, GAPP Alternative Prevention Program, Los Angeles Unified School District, Neighborhood Youth Achievers and the Women in Film PSA Program. The foundation also grants scholarships to various at risk teens.

Additionally, we celebrate the achievements of these unrecognized heroes and our Diamonds in the RAW by honoring them at our annual Action Icon Awards Luncheon, that honor's stuntwomen and the celebrities that they double for. After the events, we follow-up with our teens via letters throughout the year to monitor their accomplishments and assign mentors as needed.
