Walker’s Legacy Foundation is introducing a new face of our Single Mothers Financial Planning and Entrepreneurship Program.
Mom’s Who Hustle: A Financial Planning and Entrepreneurship Program for Millennial Moms will provide a financial literacy and entrepreneurship curriculum that allows single mothers of color take their finances and businesses to the next level.
Research has shown that 39% of the more than 10 million low-income working families with children are headed by single working mothers. Further, children living in single-mother households have poverty rates of more than twice that of children in single-father homes (48 percent vs. 22 percent).
Within communities of color, these figures are considerably higher. According to the Department of Labor, single working women represent 65% of low-income and 34% of sole breadwinner households within the African American community.
Moms Who Hustle is specifically designed for enterprising, millennial women of color, between the ages of 21 to 35 years old who have entrepreneurial aspirations, and are looking to take their businesses to the next level.
There isn’t a day that goes by where millennial mothers are not providing for their families — these women may have a job or two or may be in the works of launching their own dream businesses.
Moms Who Hustle seeks mothers with dynamic ideas, talents, or crafts that have the potential to flourish as a business. Ranging from the beautician working out of her house, to the auto-mechanic with her own business, or the woman maintaining her online boutique… Moms Who Hustle will meet women where they are, and enhance their skills as businesswomen.
Every woman has a hustle, and through the unique curriculum of Moms Who Hustle, enterprising millennial women across the country can succeed on a professional and personal level.
