Event description

Description

The Pearl Club, a national nonprofit organization that has a mission to educate, empower and support young women to overcome poverty will hold its’ first St. Louis Empowerment Conference for high school aged young women on Monday, October 22nd from 9 am – 3 pm at Fontbonne University. The Pearl Club offers a seven-year program to its members that includes access to mentors, college preparation and success workshops, and other enrichment activities beginning in the tenth grade and continuing through college graduation and beyond.

The Empowerment Conference is one of The Pearl Club’s signature events for high school young women. 100 students will spend the day in workshops learning from established professionals about topics chosen specifically to educate, empower and enrich them to more easily navigate womanhood, college, and their early career years.

Workshops include “My Money Mindset, “My Personal Brand,” My Greatest Strength,” My Mind. My Body. My Self-Care.” among many other exciting workshops and opportunities throughout the day.

The event typically costs $25 per student, but The Pearl Club Board and friends aim to sponsor every young woman’s attendance at the Empowerment Conference. To donate, please select the "Providing Purpose: Donation" ticket. Donations go directly toward the food, transportation, event giveways, and materials that will be provided.

If you are registering to attend, or registering your students to attend, please register using the "Pearl Participant: Attendee" ticket. You will be given the option to choose one of three offered workshops for each timeslot of the day. Descriptions of each workshop are included within the sign-up.
