The GEM 2014/2015 mentorship program is officially underway and we have so much to share with you.

GEM101 – Mentee Training

Training our mentees at the Aga Khan Museum was a lot of fun! After a quick game of “speed dating” to break the ice, we launched into a program overview and answered questions.

GEM 101 – Mentor Training

Our mentors also came together to be trained. The talent in the room was evident after a quick round table of introductions.

The positive energy from both mentees and mentors was incredible – both sides were full of excitement and anticipation for the program to begin!

Workshop #1

We kicked off our GEM workshop series this month with Devra U’rzo sharing tips on multiple intelligences, studying, time management, and organization. Read more of her expert advice on our blog!

All of our matches have been made, most mentors and mentees have already met and everyone is looking forward to the nine months ahead.

Again, many thanks to all of our partners, collaborators, donors, and volunteers. We love your passion and dedication – we couldn’t have done this without you!
