Girls’ Empowerment Mission Program (GEM)

Girls’ Empowerment Mission (GEM) is a Living Classrooms program that empowers high school girls by providing opportunities and growth experiences that will enable them to become independent, self-sufficient, and confident young women. The program, run in partnership with Debbi Weinberg, is designed to address the needs of the girls within a positive and enriching environment that includes cultural, recreational, social, educational, and professional opportunities; mentoring, service to others, leadership training, financial literacy, and decision-making skills.
