G.E.M.S. is a nonprofit agency providing mentoring programs for middle and high school young ladies in the United States. The program will form partnerships with local school districts and the juvenile court system. G.E.M.S.'s mission is to foster a commitment to young people that will promote pro-social friendships, strong interpersonal skills, and reassert a sense of hope in the future. Only through personal relationships can a sense of individual responsibility be reestablished that will give youth the commitment to follow through on the path to adulthood with a sense of pride and accomplishment.

The proof


More girls are living in poverty and low-income households today than ten years ago. This is significant because these low socioeconomic-status (SES) girls face considerable challenges that affect their health, happiness, and achievement.

In 2014, GEMS most lived in single-parent families in Florida (56 percent), New York (45%), and Georgia (45%). In 2015, one in five GEMS (19%) ages 12 to 15 lived in poverty. In 2015, 41 percent of GEMS ages 12 to 17 lived in low-income families. These rates are well above the national average (32%) and are highest for Hispanic/Latina girls (61%), black/African American girls (58%), and American Indian girls (61%).
