Mission Statement

The mission of Single Mothers Student Success (SMSS) is to create a supportive environment where low-income, first-time and returning student mothers are educated, equipped and empowered to excel academically, personally and professionally. Our Goal: Our goal is to transform Poverty into Prosperity...one single mother family at a time.

Description

SMSS is a free program, that offers first-time and returning single mother students an opportunity to enhance and/or discover their academic and career potential. SMSS promotes and supports the success of our future scholars by providing a required 16-week Arriving Ready for Academic Success (ARAS) workshop series. The workshop series provides an orientation to academic strategies and behaviors necessary for academic success and retention in a post-secondary environment. Emphasis is placed on critical thinking, goal setting, note taking, time management, self-assessment and reflection, study skills, education and career pathways. Our required It Takes a Village (ITAV) enrichment workshops are designed to further educate, equip and empower student mother scholars, with topics useful to mothers of varies ages and interest. These include, but are not limited to health and well-being, career-readiness and application topics, parenting with purpose, and financial management. In addition, to our skill-building and enrichment workshops we provide family-orientated gatherings, coaching, student-mother material support, community service opportunities and a supportive network of like-minded peers.
