Girl's Empowerment Movement Update

As we begin the new year, we are grateful to see the connections and personal growth fostered by the Girls` Empowerment Movement (GEM) Program. Through arts activities, lively discussions, and sharing meals together, the GEM girls had fun exploring new perspectives and how they relate to their world.

Watch for Spring Dates for the GEM Program!

And please enjoy some photos from the program on our Facebook page:
