- Programs & Initiatives
Across the country, T. Howard Foundation alumni are making an impact on the media and entertainment industry at all levels. Since our first class of 14 interns during the summer of 1995, we have been the launching pad for success to over 1,000 T. Howard Foundation alumni.
Our mission, to diversify the industry, is not achieved until our interns become employed in the industry. Since the Foundationâ€™s Fall 2011 new hire initiative, over 400 alumni have been hired into full-time permanent positions. This includes more than 300 alumni hired within the media and entertainment industry and more than 100 alumni in other industries including public relations, information technology, sports, finance, education, aerospace, and automotive. We are proud of all THF alumni who are working in positions ranging from entry level to management and executive roles, across multiple industries and disciplines.
The relationship between the Foundation and THF interns doesnâ€™t end with their internships. Upon successful completion of a THF internship, interns are considered â€śTHF Alumniâ€ť and gain access to additional resources as well as ongoing support and opportunities to â€śpay it forward.â€ť Active alumni stay connected to the Foundation by attending events and serving as guest speakers, panelists and mentors to future T. Howard alumni.
