What is Role Model Moms?
The Role Model Moms program equips moms, who are at least 18 years old and have not completed their high school education, with the academic knowledge, confidence, and life skills necessary to successfully pass the high school equivalency exam regulated by the government of Ontario. By attaining a high school equivalency diploma, these women will have improved opportunities of employment that will better meet their family’s needs.
