The main goal of the Role Model Moms program is to equip single 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. It is our hope that by attaining a high school equivalency diploma, moms will have improved opportunities of employment that will better meet their family’s needs. The program is also designed to develop the confidence of each participant as well as the life skills of time management, daily disciplines, and communication through coaching and support. Increased capacity in these areas would translate into increased capabilities to negotiate the demands of raising a family. This program is offered at Ephraim’s Place through our partnership with Toronto City Mission.
