Girls e-mentorship innovation (GEM) is a not-for-profit organization dedicated to creating innovative programs for at-risk girls

We believe when someone inspires you, believes in you, and shares her experiences with you it can dramatically alter the course of your life. But it is extremely hard for disadvantaged girls to encounter, let alone be mentored by successful women. This is why GEM is launching a unique program that reaches out to at-risk girls (aged 14-18) from high priority neighbourhoods in Toronto and connects them with some of Toronto’s most successful female leaders. The goal is to inspire those girls to stay in school, reach their full potential and achieve economic security.

Just the beginning

GEM has partnered with Flemingdon Neighbourhood Services to launch an electronic mentorship program.
The pilot will investigate whether regular contact with a mentor can decrease stress levels and increase adaptive functioning among a group of girls in Toronto.
