Favorite New Moms value: Grit

“Grit is the tenacious ability to overcome despite setbacks and failures. It’s the self-starting engine that causes one to rise up and try again despite the odds, and that is what job training imparts through coaching, support, and resources that propel our young moms towards success and achieving their long-term goals.”
