Prosper Mentoring

Prosper Mentoring is a new United Way initiative designed to help women reach a higher level of economic stability. Over the course of 12 months, Prosper Mentoring will address all areas of a person’s life holistically (family life, health, finance, education and career), while each participant’s unique aspirations are valued by flexible, personalized goal-setting.  The best part - it is provided at no cost to participants!

Prosper Mentoring is a combination of group workshops and one-on-one mentoring sessions.  Our team of certified financial coaches will guide and encourage participants to think big and navigate obstacles as they invest in their own future.

Participants will set their own goals and work towards realizing their unique aspirations, shifting their lives from surviving to thriving.

Why is Rappahannock United Way Focusing on Women Who Work?

Why Should Employers Care About Women in the Workplace?
