PEARLS Mission

The P.E.A.R.L.S. Mentoring Program influences females in every area of their life. Females involved in the PEARLS Mentoring process are engaged in the process of becoming women who understand and embrace their purpose and influence on life personally, professionally, spiritually, and the significant role and value of community.

The PEARLS pillars of purpose are significant in how the ladies involved uphold importance in their lives, community, and everyday commitment in helping others. PEARLS pillars: Positivity, Empowerment, Aspiration, Responsibility, Leadership, and Sisterhood. ESD PEARLS Mentoring Program is for females passionate about working together to build a stronger and empowering network of sisterhood who are equipped and ready to make a difference personally, professionally, physically, and spiritually.

The PEARLS Mentoring Program face-to-face component accepts no more than 65 females each session. A waiting list is provided once we reach the 65 females, and you have the choice to participate in the e-mentoring component until a space opens for face-to-face mentoring. Participants involved in the PEARLS process of mentoring and coaching can join in-person or virtually through our e-mentoring component while still signing up for in-person activities as desired. In fact, there are many participants who choose the e-mentoring component but participate in-person for the Tea Parties, Leading Ladies Leadership Summit, and the Young Women’s Business Conference. So, you determine how often, and what you would like to be involved in to support your development mentoring and coaching plan toward a successful, engaging, you! We have a calendar full of possibilities for you to choose from during the 9 month commitment.

The PEARLS Mentoring process begins internally with the foundation of self (loving you, appreciating you, finding your inner you) and cultural history (from which you came- to appreciate where you are going), and extends externally with the identification of developing professional aptitude (your purpose, your skill set, your life shift and how it all fits in where you are going), and community empowerment. Early Start Development believes the difference we make in ourselves guides us to help others make a difference, promote life learning, knowledge sharing, and mentoring through women in leadership and purpose.
