At first glance, an organization, which suggests that schools and communities around the world should pay serious attention to the world of entertainment, might appear superficial. It is, in fact, anything but that. The world of entertainment seeks out, draws on, gives shape to, and rewards virtually every imaginable talent, inclination, aspiration, ambition, and field of knowledge. In creating pleasure for billions, it gives employment to millions. As a path out of the poverty of the central city, it is much wider, more forgiving, and more permanent than the path leading to careers as professional athletes (who are, after all, in the entertainment business themselves). Yet it is the athlete, not the playwright or animation artist or production manager, who receives the attention of today’s children. That is normal, of course, and nothing here is meant to suggest this is inappropriate. The point is not that athletes receive too much attention, it is that those in other fields—fields that hold far more career potential for today’s youngsters—receive far too little. For every young man or woman who can reasonably expect to ever make a living as a professional athlete, there are thousands who can reasonably expect to find profitable, lifetime careers in one or another segment of the entertainment business. By capitalizing on children’s innate fascination with and love for entertainment, the Poise You Can Do It program functions as both a career education program and a strong incentive to keep children in school and learning. Organizational history: : Prior to its establishment as a nonprofit organization in 1999, Poise had presented several programs for the benefit of the community, which highlighted career opportunities in the field of entertainment. These programs included interaction with professional entertainers during the course of a live, professional production. These productions reached approximately three thousand children and have included:
• Cleveland Coliseum Summer Blast (1995);
• Sonnalita Cruise Spectacular at the State Theater (1996);
• The Cleveland Public Schools and Cuyahoga Community College Career Expo (1997).
• Poise Mini-Extravaganza on Public Square (1997); • Shoes for Kids Holiday Extravaganza (1997).
• Cleveland City Hall/Youth Christmas Extravaganza Events, 2014–2015, 2016–2017.
• City of Cleveland Youth Career Expo 2019-Cleveland State University. Also, in March 2004, Poise conducted a taping of the You Can Do It program at the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame, which was later rebroadcast to tens of thousands of area households on Cablevision Channel thirty-five. The program was again presented at the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame as a benefit concert for Poise in December 2005.
Organizational successes: the success stories of two young people illustrate the potential of the program. “Jamaal” was a senior at a Cleveland public school, with no clear direction for his life following graduation. Without the grade point average or the athletic prowess to garner a college scholarship, he had little idea of career possibilities. His attendance to a You Can Do It performance in 2008 put him in contact with a broadcast technician. Seeing a match for his interests, Jamaal is now enrolled in the Ohio Center for Broadcasting.
