Pearls Who Prosper USA is a social enterprise that creates intellectual properties (guides, manuals, trademarks, processes, chapter prototypes)as primary assets. The value of these properties is in their ability to double, and even triple, the income potential of at-risk, low-income, job-bound high school students, who join high school chapters of the PWP club to become college-bound.
In college, they join a college chapter of PWP to complete college requirements on time with a career jumpstart.
After college, they join work life chapters to enjoy career prosperity.
PWPUSA is not the club. The PWP club is an unincorporated association of individuals who aspire new levels of career prosperity. Therefore, the members of the club are not members of PWPUSA, which has no members.
