Ryan Reynolds Launches Diversity Program for Mentorship on His Movie Sets (Video)
Ryan Reynolds has launched “The Group Effort Initiative,” a diversity and inclusion program that Reynolds is self financing with the goal of giving people of color opportunities to work and learn on the “Deadpool” actor’s productions, the actor announced on Friday.

Reynolds will be mentoring between 10 and 20 trainees of all ages who are black, indigenous, people of color or from marginalized communities. These new trainees will be both paid and housed out of his own salary and will spend their days on set, learning from on-set professionals and getting real-life experience that they can then parlay into another job and hopefully a career in the film industry.

The Group Effort Initiative will commence on Reynold’s upcoming action-adventure film, currently untitled and produced and directed by Shawn Levy, and will continue on for future projects.
