This 15-episode narrative documentary collection not only underscores the barriers they face balancing their studies with childcare, but also celebrates their resilience to improve their well-being and highlights the organizations that are advancing their success.

Given the impact of the COVID-19 pandemic, guests also share the challenges they faced working, studying, parenting, and staying healthy from home."

ProjectAttain! knows that while parents are 10 times less likely to complete a bachelor's degree within five years than students who are not, they are also the most powerful catalyst for multigenerational educational attainment.

We are committed to advancing the success of student parents in the Capitol Region.
