JL Boston’s newest community volunteer program is in partnership with Jeremiah Program. Jeremiah Program is a national organization which offers successful strategies for transforming families from poverty to prosperity two generations at a time. Jeremiah prepares determined single mothers to excel in the workforce, readies their children to succeed in school, and reduces generational dependence on public assistance. In short, they help low-income single mothers complete a college degree while caring for a family.
Jeremiah Program’s Boston facility is located at 130 Warren Street in Nubian Square, where they provide empowerment and life skills training and individual coaching. JL Boston is partnering with the Jeremiah Program for the second year.
League members serve the Jeremiah Program primarily by tutoring Jeremiah moms in their college coursework one-on-one. In addition, JL Boston has supported Jeremiah families by volunteering at Jeremiah Program’s inaugural fundraiser in Boston, collecting holiday gifts, and holding drives to collect essential items for moms and their families such as feminine hygiene products and school supplies.
