The Diamond’s program is the oldest program at the Pearls of Hope center and caters to young ladies 9th grade to Freshman in college. Classes and workshops have been running since 2009. The classes are designed to help our young ladies become strong, confident members of our community. The classes offer open discussions that allow the young ladies to speak about challenges they face in high school and beyond and receive affirmations and feedback from their mentors and peers. The Diamonds also have presentations that they’ve planned as a part curriculum that help sharpen organization, teamwork and public speaking skills. The Diamonds also help plan and organize events to prepare them for the role of mentor after graduation.
