“It’s important for girls to be physically active because if you feel good physically, it will help you feel better mentally.” 🧠💪🏾 – GEM Ambassador Leader, Natalia Desrosiers, explains how GEM empowers girls to create fun and exciting physical activity opportunities for middle school girls. GEM Ambassadors explore and lead various physical activities, discover the activities they enjoy most and create a physical activity plan designed to reach their individual and group goals. #girlsempowerment #youthleadership

GEM is taking a different approach to addressing the disparities in girls health and fitness levels. Unlike other programs, GEM empowers girls to create physical activity and wellness programming that meets their needs.

Through strong partnerships and unique programming, GEM is empowering girls to create physical activity programs, improve fitness levels, promote long term health, and enhance their emotional well-being. Your support today will help us continue to deliver innovative youth-led programming to girls across Georgia.
