The Pearl Club provides comprehensive ongoing enrichment, support and mentorship to our members. We start with our young women in the 10th grade and build a foundation for their collegiate success through college graduation. Our sisterhood focuses empowering young women to overcome the crossroads of poverty by emphasizing skill building, workplace readiness, goal setting, academic planning and enrichment and career planning. For all of our members, we have a goal that they will overcome poverty, earn a college degree and enter the workforce as a young professional with earning potential.
100 percent of our young women enroll in college directly from high school and successfully complete their first year of college!
