The BYOB Experience was developed by PurposeBound Parents' founder, LaWanda Woods-Howard to address the root of the disparities facing single parents in low-income housing communities.  Many have found it useful for all women trying to overcome their specific challenges from their past. It is a 5-week, customized curriculum with a specific focus on changing the mindsets of individuals from a fixed mindset to a growth mindset.

Based on the research of Dr. Carol Dwerk, professor of Psychology at Stanford University, our curriculum takes the findings of Dr. Dwerk's work with children and translates how those findings manifest into adulthood - specifically how past failures are seen as one's inability to succeed as adults, parents and students.

The BYOB Experience gives program participants a blank canvas to start a journey to self-awareness by incorporating growth vs.fixed mindset discoveries to change the trajectory of future outcomes in their personal and (potential) professional lives.


Heading 5

"I want everyone who goes through this curriculum to know that you are the most important project you will every work on. For things to change, YOU must change. For circumstances to improve, YOU must improve and for life to get better, YOU must get better".
