Sharing is caring!

The P.E.A.R.L.S. Program – Positive, Empowering, Aspiring, Responsible, Leaders with a Shared Vision in helping young ladies build self-confidence, self-respect, cultural awareness and pride, influences females in every area of their life; from character, abstinence, family values, building self-confidence and esteem to empowering through diversity, the P.E.A.R.L.S. Program engages females in becoming women who understand and embrace their purpose and influence on life personally, professionally and within their communities.

The P.E.A.R.L.S. Program promotes interactive activities and discussions creating positive change, invoking an assured sense of self-value, as well as nurturing passion, integrity, culture, and respect among females. The females involved in the P.E.A.R.L.S. Program walk away from their experience enhanced and empowered to do more with their lives, wearing and representing the luster and shape of the P.E.A.R.L.S. characteristics.

The P.E.A.R.L.S Program begins internally (with the foundation of self and cultural history) and extends externally (with the identification of developing professional aptitude and community empowerment). Early Start Development believes the difference we make in ourselves guides us to help others make a difference, promoting life learning, knowledge sharing, and mentoring through women in leadership.

  • To develop females self-worth and independent thinking

  • To develop short and long term goals and critical thinking

  • To develop healthy relationships and fitness

  • To improve females self-image, respect, core values, and self-confidence
