Girl's Empowerment Movement
The Girls Empowerment Movement (G.E.M.) provides leadership, mentorship and empowerment opportunities to girls across District 19. G.E.M. encourages girls to seek and celebrate their individuality by giving them a safe space, encouragement, structure and support to embrace their journey of self-discovery and self-love. Mentors help girls identify and apply their power and voice as individuals and as a group focusing on issues that are important in the lives of girls centered around the Core Values. Topics include learning about self, connecting with others, and planning for the future as strong, confident young ladies.
