College and Career Readiness Program

In support of our mission to empower girls to achieve their goals and dreams, PEARLS is committed to equipping our girls with the knowledge, resources, and tools they need to define and successfully navigate their academic and professional paths.

Lead by Danita Bush, College and Career Readiness Manager, programming includes: college preparation events and campus visits at local colleges and universities; opportunities for girls to explore careers through job shadowing, networking events with corporate partners, and mentoring; extensive support for girls as they navigate job, college, and scholarship applications with the opportunity to be paired with a volunteer College and Career Coach; and deliberate integration of academic success planning and career development in the PEARLS Leadership Compass curriculum.
