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
