The Single Mothers’ Career Readiness and Success Project is seeking information about postsecondary institutions and Career and Technical Education programs that prepare single mothers for career pathway success, by providing one or more of the following:
- Subsidized childcare
- Financial support, e.g. scholarships, emergency funds, institutional aid
- Partnerships with local agencies and community based organizations to provide support services
- Advising, coaching, navigator, and/or case management services
The Single Mothers’ Career Readiness and Success Project is led by the National College Transition Network (NCTN) at World Education, with funding from ECMC Foundation.
Our goal is to identify and document the successful models and practices and create program profiles compiled in a report that will be shared with educators, policymakers, and funders, nationally.

Hi Sandy, the Institute for Women's Policy Research has a Student Parent Success Initiative that addresses the challenges of single mothers who are pursuing postsecondary education. You might contact them for leads.
