G.E.M.S (Girls Empowered Mentoring Space) is a safe space for adolescent girls to come together, support each other, talk to each other regularly, and gain enough confidence to know they are not alone.
Our vision for G.E.M.S is to create a safe space for our girls to be vulnerable and most importantly themselves.
Identifying The Problem
1 in 3
believe they must present a perfect image on
Presently, our young women are dealing with societal pressures regarding self-image thanks to social media. In fact, in 2017 an article published in The Guardian highlighted that 1 in 3 young women believe they must present a perfect image on Instagram.
It's also worth mentioning that 2 out of 3 social media users, report experiencing depression-60% of those users were women.
A monthly virtual workshop with other female leaders who will cultivate discussions on topics relevant to current events/experiences. A variety of female leaders hosting different activities will allow the girls to have a different experience each month.
Each girl will receive a "Glow Bag" after every workshop that will contain school supplies and feminine hygiene products.
Our young women will acquire better skills for success through learning about self-worth. This will then positively contribute to their academic success.
We will create a tribe of women who support each other, not tear each other down!
