The mission of MOSTe (Motivating Our Students Through Experience) is to empower girls from underserved neighborhoods of Los Angeles County to become the next generation of college-educated women.
From 7th grade through college, MOSTe utilizes programs that combine personal growth with academic skill-building to create a “smart girl" culture, while firmly believing that change happens at the individual level, with one girl at a time. Our vision is to be an agent of positive change and successfully graduate all of our students from four-year colleges, preparing them for professional careers and positions of leadership within their communities.
Through DreamJobbing, our students have created video profiles showcasing their personality and career goals. They are hoping to connect and learn from leaders in the field. It only takes one day to change a girl's life forever. If you, or someone you know, would like to mentor or allow one of our students to job shadow you for a day, please reach out to us at: firstname.lastname@example.org

MOSTe was the brainchild of Dr. Lois Frankel, author of best-selling books about women and leadership roles. In 1986, while researching families and education, Dr. Frankel found that young girls from underserved backgrounds were missing out on key information about higher educational and career opportunities. Determined to remove the obstacles that held these girls back, Dr. Frankel gathered representatives from Paramount, First Interstate Bank, Southern California Gas Company, Southern California Edison, Women in Radio and Television, and the Black Women's Network to develop a format for what would become MOSTe. They envisioned a program that would encourage young women not just to stay in school, but to do well in school, educate them about the working world, and provide guidance about what it takes to become a successful woman.More info
