Through net proceeds from their signature event, the Women Who Rock lunch, Women’s Leadership Council provides child care scholarships for young moms committed to continuing their education beyond high school.
Women’s Leadership Council’s Young Mother’s Daycare Scholarship supports young moms in their efforts to pursue post-secondary education. One of the biggest obstacles for a young mother is childcare. This scholarship is unique in that it underwrites childcare for deserving young women who are committed to continuing their education after completing high school.
Members of the Women’s Leadership Council serve as scholarship interviewers by meeting the young women and serving as shining examples of what their future could be. Scholarship recipients receive mentoring during the school year, and have the opportunity to attend workshops on life-balance while their children are cared for and able to attend with them as well.
>In 2015, the Women's Leadership Council Young Mother's Childcare Scholarship Program helped 13 young moms access quality childcare allowing them to pursue higher education.
