P.E.A.R.L.S., and our emerging leadership program, the Petite P.E.A.R.L.S. mentors young ladies in the third and fourth grades. The ladies meet weekly after school to enrich their knowledge using our five targets: Health and Wellness, Self-Esteem, Character Building, Career Choices, and Etiquette.Yearly, approximately 20 girls participate in each group; our goal is to raise $50.00 per young lady to help offset cost of providing a quality experience. Your donations will help the P.E.A.R.L.S. by contributing to funds for our field trips (ex. Alvin Ailey at the Kennedy Center) transportation cost, arts and crafts materials, snacks, custom shirts and wardrobe assistance, and fund-raising expenses.
