Celebrating one year of "Charting Your Course!"

On July 31, 2021, ProsperityME was pleased to announce the graduation of our first “Charting Your Course” cohort! 16 immigrant women completed a 12-session course in partnership with In Her Presence to help them find their voice, cultivate self-value, develop financial skills, and persue their dreams. Whether participants wanted to find a job, further their education or start their own business, our teachers and counselors helped them to set goals and “chart their course” towards their dreams.

The 16 graduates celebrated with teachers and supporting staff from ProsperityME and In Her Presence, displaying their hard-earned certificates of completion. After completing the initial 12-week session, participants receive individual and group coaching to help them on their journeys.

Congratulations to our 16 Graduates!
