Since GEM’s launch in 2012, we have served over 200 girls in Toronto, seeing them through to post-secondary pursuits, including university entry. We have seen mentorship relationships deepen and girls transformed into confident, empowered young women.
Who We Are
Girls E-Mentorship (GEM) is a top 100 rated charity offering unparalleled opportunities for high-school girls to build professional skills, breakthrough socio-economic barriers and achieve their goals. GEM’s research-based mentorship program was founded in 2012 by Rochelle de Goias-Jackman, from a vision where all young women have the opportunity to succeed, despite any barriers they face.
Our vision is for girls to reach their full potential, and emerge as empowered young women and future female leaders.
