Girl Empowerment through Mentorship

GEM is a mentorship program that pairs refugee girls ages 11-15 years old with peer mentors, girls ages 15-18 years, from the community to provide an opportunity of learning important life skills of confidence, effective communication, leadership, social responsibility, and making positive life choices.


Through workshops, open forums, and projects, we aim to empower girls to build self-esteem, develop their strengths and leadership abilities, live up to their highest potential, and motivate each other to become more influential voices in their communities. The group will have monthly meetings at the AMWA office.
