Black Mothers Forum
Urban Microschool Network
Working to empower a growing army of mothers who want to impact their children’s education with personalized learning, Janelle Wood launched this first-of-its-kind program for urban black moms during the pandemic. The moms help to support their student’s learning, and some run the small group learning centers they set up. The students’ education is powered by a number of great education providers which are financially sustainable on public dollars. Their success is so extraordinary that they’ve been asked to expand throughout the state and beyond. With the state’s new Empowerment Scholarships, as well as charter school partnerships, the potential for the Black Mothers Forum knows no bounds.
