Be a better you

The GEMZ is a leadership and mentoring program for young ladies between the ages of 11 and 18. We are located in the DC Metropolitan Area. Our motto is 'Living a Life of Value.' The GEMZ is dedicated to developing young women with the spirit of excellence and leadership. Our programs and activities focus on building better self-esteem, self-confidence and leadership skills among the girls.

In June 2016, The GEMZ recently extended its initiative to include a new demographics - Women between the ages of 35 to 45 and are called GEMX (Our Generation X group). The mission of this addition is to provide an avenue to inspire, motive and allow women within the age group to embrace the phases and seasons that come with that age group.
