Mentoring and Empowerment
GEM2GEM programs are Mentorship and Advocacy programs that connect youth to mentors who encourage them to create and follow goals for the future using the #GEMTalk Model. GEM Mentors are women and men from similar backgrounds who have found ways to overcome their own obstacles and now commit to pushing Gems to do the same.
With the understanding that Bronx girls often lack adequate representation, our advocacy program aims to provide a network of services and resources that support all stakeholders of girls' lives.
GemTalk is rooted in our core principles– self-esteem leadership skills, management, identities and expression.
GEM2Men ensures that boys from urban communities would have a safe space to healthily express themselves.
