If you have achieved career success in one of our targeted industries, and want to learn more about how this registry helps low-income, at-risk youth to develop skill focused, industry specific college tracks, please click the link below.

Chapter Exemplar List
The exemplars selected by pearls in each chapter are placed on that chapter's exemplar list and organized into 1 of the 5 exemplar categories.

Exemplar Mentoring Days
Exemplars selected from the Registry, in different targeted industries, are invited to attend online pre-scheduled "Exemplar Mentoring Days" during the school year. Each exemplar makes a brief presentation to tell his or her story and highlight specific skills in demand by employers. This includes a live "question and answer" period.





Targeted Industry Lists

Each pearl develops a targeted industry list that contains: 1) the names of the industries of interest to that pearl, and 2) the reasons why each of these industries is of interest.

Career Plans/Industry Groups
 Each of the career plans developed by 9th  grade pearls contains a list of targeted industries. Each industry targeted by each pearl places that pearl in that Pearl Industry Group (as set forth below). Exemplars in that industry are invited to mentoring webinars on "Exemplar Mentoring Days."


List of Recognized Industries
The list of industries recognized by Pearls Who Prosper is found below. We engage advisors and consultants in these industries to develop internships and scholarships that place pearls on industry career paths.
