Nonprofit Overview

Causes: Children & Youth, Youth Community Service Clubs

Mission: Our mission is to teach relentless self-expression without fear, while practicing self-love without shame to adolescent girls.

Target demographics: adolescent girls by teaching them relentless self-expression without fear, while practicing self-love without shame

Direct beneficiaries per year: moms and daughters successfully create ways to explore their authenticity while having fun in a safe and positive environment

Geographic areas served: the greater Kansas City, Missouri areas

Programs: interactive mentoring programs that allows for our daughters/young ladies to cultivate their mental, emotional, and spiritual health to promote balance in their lives. We offer "Dinner with our Daughters" where mom and daughters can let their hair down and communicate and laugh with their daughters in a positive/safe environment. We offer opportunities for our young ladies to participate in community service as a way of giving back. We offer vision board parties where we allow our girls to plot out their dreams and visions to give them a visual of the life they would like to create. We encourage them to finish what they start, and we hold them accountable in creating ways to identify and accomplish their personal and academic goals. These are just a few of the programs that we offer.

My daughter is involved in G.E.M and she loves it. My daughter has been coming out of her shell and becoming more confident and bold. We look forward to every event. Everything is always beautifully and professionally done. It's always great to have your child in an environment that is spirit filled and safe. Sometimes your child won't take your word for it so it's better coming from someone else and we have been blessed truly by being a part of G.E.M.

I am very pleased with G.e.m., I have two daughters who are members of this organization. Very positive environment and excellent staff that express a genuine interest in helping these young girls succeed. I'll definitely recommend this group to anyone with girls ages 10-14!

First timers with GEM and my daughter loved the vision board class! She was excited to have other girls around her age there and hearing what others had to say. It was her first time ever doing a vision board and it excited her to see the goals she has for herself. I can't wait to see what she does for the upcoming school year. Thank you GEM!

The Vision Board event was phenomenal and my daughter had an amazing time. She a learned a good lesson on releasing negative thoughts that keep will her from pursuing her dreams.
