Pearl Purpose was created as a safe space for queer and questioning youth by Leandra Nichola. It started organically with kids meeting in the Main Street Pearl micro-cafe. Kids came for drinks and vegan food in an environmentally friendly restaurant. They stayed to play games, talk and be together with like-minded friends. Thus, Pearl Purpose was born.
The space allows for self-expression and exploration, and offer programs that promote identity affirmation and inspire unconditional acceptance. Opportunities for meaningful community engagement will also be created and encouraged.
The vision of Pearl Purpose is to inspire communities where all youth are valued, welcomed, and encouraged to engage.
