High School Principals Host PWP Chapters To
Improve Their School Performance

Via a chapter host agreement with a local non-profit affiliate, high school principals empower struggling at-risk students to gain college acceptance. This delivers financial resources and community support to at-risk, low-income students at each grade level. Students known as Pearls join the PWP career club via the high school chapter.  

Pearls gain knowledge by selecting self-paced, 1-hour personal learning experiences. Pearls in 9th grade use this new knowledge to develop career plans and projects, 10th graders develop college plans and projects, 11th graders compete for scholarships, 12th graders perform community service projects. In the process classroom performance and grade point averages improve, and the number of college going students increases. Pearls transition from a job-track to create a College Track

Improved Student Outcomes

Grade level competitions, called challenges, motivate pearls with prizes, awards, recognition, mentoring and scholarship opportunities. Student outcomes are measurable. 

9 College Scholarships/Trust Account

A scholarship trust account, established in year 1, as a prototype chapter, creates up to 9 scholarships for these pearls, and as much as $18,000 in scholarship resources for your high school. But pearls must score points each school year to become eligible to apply for these scholarships. Learn More About Scholarships

Greater Self-Esteem and Self-Confidence

Interest, skill and value assessments, combined with letters of support, ACT/SAT test prep exercises, and weekly awards and community recognition enhance self-esteem and self-confidence of participating pearls, and highlight your high school for the outstanding work being done. 

Deeper College/Career Insights

Industry, employer and occupational explorations create a deeper understanding of the relevance of courses and classroom experiences. College explorations provide new knowledge about college life, college degrees, costs, and opportunities for personal growth as a college student.

Improved Student Performance

Specific courses are identified by the 5 teacher advisors you recommend as program courses to be taken. Pearls receive points for selecting these courses, and for doing well.

Community Service  Portfolio

Each senior pearl develops leadership skills and demonstrates an interest in community service by volunteering time to a civic organization, church, or agency in your community. This increases the chances of college acceptance, additional resources to pay for college, and expands community support for your high school.Learn More About Sponsor Support
