Minor Hall

The Minor Hall Program is a mentoring program for high-risk young ladies in grades 6-9 in the Detroit area. The program is designed to give young ladies exposure to social, cultural, and educational enrichment activities. Our goal is for our participants to gain leadership skills, integrity, self-disciple, and self-confidence. The Minor Hall program participants are mentored by members of Pearls of Promise Foundation, Inc.

Community Service

Minor Hall students are taught at a very young age the importance of giving back to the community. Students are given opportunities to work with Pearls of Promise members on various community service activities regularly. Some of those activities include:

  • Healthy Living Health Fair
  • Cass Community Services - Sandwich to Go Program
