MJE was founded by mothers who had lost children to

community violence. Our founders sought to share their voice

and vision to the fight against violence.

  • You Matter: Personal Leadership Training, the core of MJE's educational programming

  • Youth Peer Leadership program

  • Workforce Readiness Initiative, provides coaching and mentoring (provided by past participants) as well as job search assistance, resume and interview prep. Mothers are expected to secure employment and/or continue education within 12 months of enrolling in the program. Much of our current staff are past program participants and we have strong community relationships allowing us to place both adults and youth in jobs outside of the agency.

  • Financial Literacy curriculum involves working with incarcerated individuals at the Suffolk County House of Corrections to expand our impact to address the needs of young adult incarcerated men coming back into the community

  • MJE is leading parenting trainings for parents of youth

    attending The Mildred School as well as offering our

    Youth programming at The Mildred School and Codman

    Academy for Education Programs are organized under

    the Civic Leadership Academy, utilizing MJEs You

    Matter Curriculum. Classroom education is provided to

    groups at our main Roxbury location twice annually and

    at strategic partner organizations monthly throughout the

    year. You Matter curriculum is also incorporated into our

    year-round Youth Peer Leadership program.

  • MJE responds to emerging needs by designing

    specific modules for unique populations, such as a new

    Homeless Teen Mothers program in partnership with

    area shelter services.

  • Empowerment breakfasts, Corner Caf Voter Engagement, an annual Mothers of Courage Award Ceremony
