4 Chapter Prototypes 
(Ideas In Development)
The members of the career club are chapters. Each chapter is a distinct operating unit with a chapter host who owns a charter which authorizes the formation of that chapter, and governs its activities. Each chapter admits individuals as members of that chapter.

Each chapter member has a type and classification. Chapter members elect chapter officers, create and approve an annual chapter operating plan, develop and administer the chapter budget, and raise chapter revenues.

Prototype Testing Details

Club Prototype


Feature 1: Four Membership Divisions. 
Each division serves pearls in different stages of Career Development.
1. YPU (Youth Pearls Up) High School Division
2. CPU (College Pearls Up) College Division 
3. BPU (Breakthrough Pearls Up) Young Adult Division (Under 30 Years Old) 
4. PFL (Pearls For Life) - Seasoned Adult Division (30+ Years Old)    
Feature 2: Four Brands
Each division has a brand, which is the promise of a unique experience that has value for each customer, the individual pearl who joins a chapter in that division. Each brand focuses on serving customers in identifiable primary segments of the total pearl marketplace. These segments are based on stages of Career Development.  

Youth Pearls Up
Pearls In High School 
College Pearls Up
Pearls In College
Urban high school students, male and female,
in high poverty schools, who receive no guidance,
have no resources, and no college prospects.
The YPU brand promises a career plan, a college
plan, scholarships, mentoring, and college
acceptance letters.

Students in college who are first generation
and need to complete remedial courses.
Also, financial assistance, counseling and
coaching are needed to remain in and
complete their college degree. The CPU brand
promises on-time college completion with
little or no student debt, and a career jumpstart.

Breakthrough Pearls Up
Adult Pearls Under 30
Pearls For Life
Adult Pearls 30+
Young adults in work life who have no career 
vision, and are dissatisfied with their job. They 
lack a feeling of purpose in their work and do
not have a sense of meaning or value in their
work. The BPU brand promises frequent
breakthroughs that produce career milestones
to generate a clear vision of career prosperity.

Adults with 10 or more years of work experience
who are not truly engaged at work. They are not
sufficiently satisfied with their jobs and feel stuck
in a rut. They are not growing personally or
professionally. They are disappointed and
discouraged. The PFL brand promises measurable,
consistent career growth in 7 solution domains,
peer partner support, recognition of achievements,
coaching and counseling.

Feature 2: Area Chapter Networks. An area chapter network is the group of PWP chapters located in the same metro area. Organizationally, each chapter is located in 1 of 4 divisions. Chapters in the same division in each network are the same cluster, under the leadership of a cluster coordinator. 

   Item 1. Network Management:  Each area chapter network is managed by the Office of Area Director in that metro area, which includes Cluster Coordinators. 

   Item 2: Cluster Coordinators:  Each CC develops and manages local sponsor relationships (individuals, small businesses, major employers, agencies and non-profit organizations interested in supporting a specific chapter in any division.)

   Item 4: Pearls In Action: This is the PWP social media production company responsible for PWP social media strategy development and implementation. It is led by the PIA national director. It has a branch location in each office of each area director. Each of these branches produces promotional packages with videos featuring local pearls. In addition, each branch markets these packages to local sponsors, and publishes videos on 6 social media channels to attract sponsors. Further, the national director awards prizes to branches based on sponsorships sold. Each chapter president appoints PIA production assistants to create and send videos to the PIA national director. These production assistants receive awards and recognition for the quality and quantity of the videos they produce. 

Feature 3: Four Membership Networking Websites. Each division has a membership website connected to the Club Express software platform including an online store, to facilitate membership applications, communications via blogs, photos and videos, as well as information publishing and merchandise sales, and coaching and consulting services.
