Girls Empowerment (GEM) Academy
The Girls Empowerment (GEM) Academy is a multi-faceted program that empowers teen girls ages 13-17, by fostering positive self esteem, encouraging healthy relationships, and inspiring personal success. The program consists of meetings, full day workshops and special events. Participants receive journals as a means of setting goals, creating action plans, and tracking positive and negative progress. Each summer, the Academy hosts the "Not Your Average Girl" Empowerment Conference.
