P2W provides a convincing and adventurous opportunity for community members to allow knowledge to lead them into to self and social impact locally, nationally, and globally.


African American children from low-income homes are three times more likely to be poor, and are at greater risk for illiteracy. P2W exists as seeds and water that combat those probabilities in order to see urban and impoverished communities thrive, where people of color are significantly more likely to live in high-poverty neighborhoods, even if they themselves are not poor.

Participants are paid to meet with mentors to read and discuss the material they read. Participants then embark on many opportunities to serve the communities in which they live as well as their regional, national, and global community. Pages To Wages exists to initiate the first step of self and social responsibility, knowledge, awareness, and education, and to cultivate the next step, action.
