Meet the Founder:
Jasmine Robinson- Founder/Executive Direction of the Collegiate Mom Coalition in 2010 while she was attending Prairie View A&M University as an undergraduate student. She saw a need for organization to support young moms when she herself became a teen mom in 2008 at the age of 19 and again at 21. Statistically, less than 2% of teen moms graduate college by the age of 22.

She beat those odds when she graduated with her Bachelor's of Science in Architecture in 2012 and received her Master's of Community Development in 2013. Her mission is to continue to help young moms to achieve this themselves.
