Girls Empowered Mentored & Supported (G.E.M.S) Inc. is a non-profit agency that provides mentoring tools, workshops and seminars to assist middle and high school girls in the Metropolitan Atlanta area. G.E.M.S. Workshops are offered at Tucker Recreation Center.
"Our Mission is to assist girls age 12 to 18 deal with life-changing experiences. We believe mentoring relationships in girls-only environments develop knowledge and power. Our Goal is to support and inspire girls through counseling, educating, and promoting self-awareness."
Girls who are overcoming stressors in their lives, such as poverty, discrimination, abusive situations, addictions, unstable homes and academic life are the primary focus of G.E.M.S. The mentoring system we provide fosters positive changes through goal setting, self-discipline, skill development and friendship.
G.E.M.S. will focus primarily on middle and high school youths; it is projected that within three years, 50% of the system’s students will be in middle school. This age group is particularly problematic and a perfect time for mentoring to be effective. The focus is slightly different at each level but the goal remains the same, empower girls to make positive changes in their lives. G.E.M.S. partners with local school districts, businesses, churches and other youth services agencies to help young women grow and succeed. We provide training to other non-profit organizations, businesses and other youth services agencies.
