PEARLS for Teen Girls, Inc., is a dynamic and innovative non-profit leadership development organization serving at-risk, primarily African American and Latina girls ages 10-19 in Milwaukee. PEARLS inspires girls in some of our city’s most socially and economically challenged neighborhoods to avoid teen pregnancy, succeed in school, aim for college and enter the workforce and our community as self-motivated leaders. PEARLS is in the midst of an exciting growth strategy—increasing the number of girls served from 850 in 2011 to 1,100 in 2013, with the goal of eventually reaching 10,000 at-risk Milwaukee girls on an annual basis through its 10,000 Girls Initiative.
