Home - November


Just over three months ago, we launched our 2014/2015 GEM program.  Since then we’ve had the opportunity to collaborate with the oldest girl school in Canada as well as some of the city’s most creative female entrepreneurs.  The best part – every one of our partners saw potential in GEM and are eager to support the growth of our spectacular GEMgirls.

BSS Scholarship

We announced our exciting partnership with BSS earlier this month. BSS has offered scholarships for their intensive one-week math skills summer academy. The details of this partnership are outlined here BSS & GEM Partner.

Foods for Your Moods Workshop

Joy McCarthy, holistic nutritionist of Joyous Health, shared her wisdom on healthy eating and joyous living with our GEMgirls providing refreshing options to be happy and healthy. Read Your Daily Dose of Joy for more information.

University Applications Assistance

GEM hosted a workshop on University Applications, focusing primarily on writing personal statements.

Leadership Coaching Sessions

Each GEMgirl received an individual coaching session with Anne-Marie Sorrenti based off of their Birkman Assessments this month. During the coaching session, the girls learned about their communication styles, strengths, and stressors.

Thanks to everyone involved for making November such an exciting month.
