Work Preparation Program
Work Preparation Program falls under our value of Financial Independence. We care about training mothers towards financial independence with skills so they can approach the professional world with confidence. There is a transformative, affect-changing, face-lifting level of confidence brought into a single mothers’ life when she hears the words “you’re hired” and she can feel proud to bring a paycheck home to her kids. Emerge believes in building up single mothers to be confident women and caring moms. When we look at all of our programs, it’s clear that work prep and job placement builds the most confidence into these women!

We know this program is effective! Work Preparation participants grow their annual income by an average of $25,011. Work Preparation works to build intragenerational stability for families, empower women toward successful entrepreneurship, and create a stronger community by increasing family stability and success. Join our efforts and empower single moms to develop long-term financial stability, independence, and self-sufficiency.
“I CANNOT believe I got one of the jobs I applied to during my very first Work Preparation class. Why did I always doubt myself so much? EMA helped me push that out of the way and believe I could do it!” – Work Prep Client
Work-Preparation consists of one-on-one and small-group job skills training at four metro locations. We are excited to be adding a permanent site at our future home-base at the Center of Belonging. Thank you for partnering with us to equip single mothers to emerge as confident women and caring moms!
