SOCIAL ACTIVITIES AND COMMUNITY ENGAGEMENT

LEADERSHIP TRAINING

Career readiness and college preparedness is a primary focus or our programs.  Students are exposed to high learning experiences and opportunities to engage with industry professionals.

COMMUNITY OUTREACH

AND ADVOCACY

We believe the lives of residents are connected through their community.  What happens in one neighborhood affects others and what happens in a child's life affects other children's lives and families. We operate mobile across communities in order to serve more youth and families.  We also produce literacy and community outreach events throughout the year.

Helping Students Reach Their Life Goals​

As a community, it is our duty to help our youth prepare for adulthood. Creating education and cultural programs, we offer teens and children the opportunity to grow, build communication skills, and engage each other in ways they may not ordinarily. GEMS engages students to learn by  managing their activities in everyday life, health and making life changing decisions to assist with "Preparing for SUCCESS" both in and out the classroom!
