“What really stood out with this group was a collective belief in the importance of their jobs as mothers. Each woman felt strongly that she must earn her children’s trust and become a parent that they deserve and can be proud of.

“I’m a million times more confident, not just at work but in every aspect of my life. And my kids love the fact that I don’t stress out every time they need clothes or school supplies. I can afford these things now!”

— Becky, Program Participant

The women really benefited from past Climb graduates who came in to share what it’s like working in non-traditional fields, including one who is almost through her Pipefitting apprenticeship and has five young children. Her determination and persistence gave the moms inspiration and hope that they can make the journey, too.”

— Misty Savage, Cheyenne Program Director
