What is currentEconomics?
The Current Project is launching its second cohort, one focused on providing Black single mothers with the economic tools necessary for economic thriving. CurrentEconomics, a 3-month journey, will function as a laboratory for economic recovery, social liberation and innovation, community building, and financial mastery.
CurrentEconomics will provide access to targeted support for Black mothers to build the personal and economic infrastructure to expand their understanding about money, create and strengthen their economic wellbeing, and leave equipped to make meaningful decisions about their financial future.
What Can you expect?
Over the course of three months, you will engage in 9 days of dynamic learning with some of the best and brightest leaders, deepening your understanding of your personal relationship to money. We take an interdisciplinary approach to financial literacy, offering culturally sensitive and socially aware experiences that are unique to the lives of Black single mothers.
Current Standings: A New Year Financial Review
The old adage "knowing is half the battle" is especially true when discussing our financial health. Lead by Financial Success Coach LJ Finney, participants will do the important work of assessing their current financial health: income-to-debt ratio, cash flow, and build the skills to create a flourishing financial future.
Reclaiming Your Narrative
We will take a unique approach to understanding our financial lives by exploring our relationship to self. We will create opportunities to explore our personal narratives, help us make deep connections to our experiences, and prepare us for a journey of social and economic liberation.
Money March Madness
LJ Finney is back to lead a four-day intensive on everything you need to know about credit, savings accounts, and how to make the most of your money.
What's the cost?
The Current Project's programming is made possible by generous donors. There is zero cost for the single mothers in our program.
Who is this for?
CurrentEconomics is for single mothers/heads of households who:
Have little to no knowledge about how to manage their finances and are ready to start building their financial toolboxes
May have some knowledge about financial tools and want to put what they know into practice.
Have had some practice in using financial tools and fair management of their finances and want to optimize their financial health.
Do I have to commit to all three modules?
To ensure participants not only get the financial fortitude needed to thrive, but create meaningful connections with other moms who share their story, participants are committing to the entire program.
What's the time commitment?
The program begins the week of January 30th. Confirmed participants will receive a calendar and other digital materials. The cohort meets a total of nine days through the end of March, with meetings occurring week nights after 6:30 PM EST.
How many people will be in the cohort? Is there a limit?
Yes! This highly sought after program will be limited to 20 participants. Do not wait to sign up!
