Now accepting applications for the Class of 2014-2015! GEM has seen a lot of changes since wrapping the pilot. We have expanded to include 30 girls from Flemingdon, Thorncliffe, and Regent Park! We have also extended our program from 3 months to 9 months, providing lots of time with your mentor. GEMgirls asked for more interaction and exposure to diverse careers – and we have delivered. Looking for more? Here are a few extra reasons to apply:
- Mentorship: Where else can you meet Toronto’s best and brightest women? Each GEMgirl is matched with an amazing female mentor for 9 months!
- Network: Join a community of ambitious, creative and interesting girls who will encourage and help you reach your full potential.
- Opportunity: GEM will help expand your horizons and inspire you through our engaging speaker series, coffee chats with professionals, and our brand new arts program.
- Perks: Each GEMgirl will receive a membership to The Aga Khan Museum, a Birkman assessment and personal analysis session (valued at $400), and yoga classes – for free! Plus tons of additional freebies throughout the year.
- Satisfaction: Do you want to feel ready for your future?
Last year, GEM alumni told us the program:
- Helped them gain insight into careers that interested them
- Exposed them to careers that they did not know of before
- Allowed them to explore issues of self-esteem and confidence
- Prepared them for the next chapter in their life
- 100% of GEMgirls said they would recommend the program to their friends!
Applications are open now through September 15th. If you have any questions, feel free to email us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
