Girls' Empowerment Matters GEM, Inc.
was founded in March of 2017 in response
to specific needs of girls from The Bronx. 


To provide a safe space for girls to confidently pilot healthy, happy, and fulfilling lives...


by being who we needed when we were their age.


Building a society where every girl can easily realize her potential and achieve her goals.


We believe that providing a girl with a nurturing environment is essential to her overall development.


More About Us

Today’s Gems are tomorrow’s leaders, and through personalized attention and guidance we are essentially providing them with all the resources they need to thrive as leaders.We can only do this with everyone's help. This is why we service boys that girls interact with, parents that raise girls, and teachers and staff who work with girls. GEM, Inc. provides unique, life-changing experiences to all of the community’s young minds. We implement quality STEAM, social justice, and mentoring programs to directly respond to the unique issues Bronx girls face. 

We believe in and practice the true act of caring. We know how important it is to demonstrate a sincere concern for others. 


We hold compassion, generosity, and kindness close to our hearts, and go the extra mile to provide our youth with a wide range of opportunities that will allow them to reach their fullest potential.
