GROWTH. SERVICE. SISTERHOOD.
STRIVING FOR CONSISTENT, POSITIVE GROWTH IN OUR…
We desire to have our students develop an ever-increasing love for learning both in and outside of the classroom setting. It is because of this reason that we’re not just dedicated to teaching our PEARLs academic skills, but also life skills such as budgeting, driving, cooking and more. Academically, it is our aim to aid our students in maintaining excellent attendance in school and in after-school programs.
When it comes to our PEARLs, we work to instill a high sense of self-worth, gratitude, humility, and confidence in them that becomes deeply rooted within their minds and hearts. We hope that when our young women face disappointments, trials, and negative temptations that they will be so deeply rooted with character and integrity that they will use every opportunity to learn valuable lessons, grow, and display wisdom.
Not only do we believe in a “life-on-life” mentorship model with our PEARLs, but we also seek to build a healthy sisterhood in which our young women can feel safe, supported, and challenged through building authentic, life-long relationships with their mentors, one another, YMEN, their families, and their broader communities.
Servant leadership is an integral part of the PEARL program. We are of the opinion that those who make the most valuable impacts on their communities are those who take to heart the maxim, “see a need, fill a need.” With that mindset, we seek to have more of a service learning aspect to our program rather than just doing service projects here and there.
