The Rare Pearls Girls Mentoring Program is a 501c3 organization that is focused on promoting girls and women. Our program is open to girls, ages 7-17. Our mission is to empower and enrich through education and by example while serving in the community. Our qualified mentors assist in guiding and inspiring our young ladies to work hard and to pursue their passion.
We are dedicated to this organization to protect our girls from the statistics which have shown:
1 in 4 girls will not finish high school
1 in 5 girls will be a victim of childhood sexual abuse
1 in 5 girls will run away from home and become homeless
3 in 10 girls will become pregnant before the age of 20
Our girls have spent the past years volunteering for community events held at the Douglas County Cultural Arts Center for the Annual Artists and Authors & Poets Event as well as making contributions to other community organizations such Hope House and Goodwill and The American Red Cross. We hosted several monthly workshops and self-help as well as attended inspirational seminars at the Civil Rights Museum in Metro Atlanta where we were able to sit and talk with professional women from companies such as Coca Cola, Delta Airlines, HP and other professions and industries. We contributed and served the community efforts of giving back to the less fortunate as we partner with F.I.T. for the Future in their community events. We are dedicated to showering love and compassion to those that are less fortunate in our communities as we volunteer and donate food, clothing and personal essentials to other youth organizations and to our homeless citizens.
By participating in our monthly workshops focused on etiquette, education, self-esteem, team building, budgeting, technology, entrepreneurship and the importance of being leaders our girls are growing to be accomplished and motivated as well as entrepreneurs. We participate annually In the "Year of the Girl" workshop event at the Civil and Human Rights Museum. We also volunteer annually at the Civil rights museum in downtown Atlanta with packing meals for overseas missions. We had our 5th annual Women's Empowerment Luncheon fundraiser in Douglasville. This event was fun, festive and exhilarating, with great entertainment, good food, and dynamic speakers.
We've spent our past two years serving as hostesses with the Douglas County Connection (DCC) for their annual Kwanzaa presentation event. When taking a break from volunteering, we attend the Atlanta Symphony as well as movies that help us with our confidence and self-esteem.
We are looking forward to another year of numerous educational activities, college tours, community activities, volunteer opportunities and self-help, inspirational, financial and technological workshops.
Our meetings are held monthly. For questions and information please email firstname.lastname@example.org
