Community Engagement

Literacy in Detroit


Pearl SMART Network focuses on Literacy in Communities. We offer reading workshops, free books, and community fairs for families throughout the year.
Celebration of Literacy in the Park is a series of Reading events hosted in local parks. During events We give free children’s books, parent reading workshops, and literacy resources to the community. 

In partnership, we provide 400-500 new children’s books at each event, ensuring each child has ACCESS to books for summer reading. Pearl SMART Network in Detroit, creates space for Literacy in Detroit.

Health and Nutrition

Pearl Urban Gardens (PUGS) is an initiative to create sustainable communities through Urban Farming. Our goal is to use Pearl Urban Gardens to educate, beautify, and nourish communities by creating sustainable resources for food. We accomplish this by converting vacant land and utilize abandon areas to host our Urban Gardens. We make IMPACT and Communities re-connect through food, security, and education.
