Launching Spring 2017
Are you a single mother with a hustle?
There isn’t a day that goes by that you are not providing for your family. You may have a job or two or may be in the works of launching your dream business.
Are you a young, enterprising millennial women of color who to take control of your financial situation like a boss?
Well, Walker’s Legacy Foundation has an opportunity for you to manage your money and seek ways to reach your entrepreneurial aspirations with Moms Who Hustle.
Moms Who Hustle: A Financial Planning and Entrepreneurship Program for Millennial Moms will provide a financial literacy and entrepreneurship curriculum that helps single mothers of color take their finances and businesses to the next level.
The curriculum will leverage online and in person learning models:
- 12-week program, guided by instructors in various geographical locations that will be providing on-site child care
- Access to financial planning tools and entrepreneurial insight to begin self-empowerment
- Community, learning, and resources provided at your fingertips with Walker’s Legacy App
This unique opportunity allows you to gain financial knowledge within a 12-week time frame.
Because we understand your lifestyle, classes will be scheduled on-site every other week at a location near you with free childcare provided. And since a boss is never off duty, the weeks that you are not onsite you will be accessing your classes using Walker’s Legacy mobile e-learning app.
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.
Women selected should be between 21 to 35 years old, be a single mother, and be self or government classified as low income or asset limited income constrained, employed women.
A focus of the program is to give this opportunity to women of color including African American and Hispanic women, but is not limited to this demographic.
