GEM CULTURE Sessions
GEM CULTURE sessions instill and build upon important life skills and character building qualities within the youth that we serve. The topic that we explore changes every semester. We offer a hybrid model with sessions taking place for 11 weeks online, every Friday from 5:00-7:00pm via Zoom. Additionally, the program promotes self-love & awareness, goal-setting, and exposure to different industries, skills and interests through interactive activities, workshops and field experiences. To offer a more in depth look into the topic that we are studying to master, we bring in Guest GEM Mentors from within our community who are highly experienced and qualified to teach them. Ultimately, our programs are designed with a holistic approach to give teenagers, ages 13-18, the resources and techniques necessary to maintain and balance a healthy lifestyle in all areas of their lives.
Programs are offered during two program sessions:
