GEM (Guide Educate and Mentor)

The goal of this project is to develop quality mentoring curriculum that helps young people (middle and high school students) create a positive environment where they can grow and develop the necessary life skills.  We complete this by planning monthly events either career and college readiness or celebratory events like birthday and holiday parties.  GEM currently works with Maryhurst and Boys’ and Girls’ Haven which both house youth in the foster care system between ages 11-18.
