More information about The Gem Project:
Since 2006, The Gem Project has serviced the greater Newark, New Jersey area and has provided high quality programming that has enforced leadership and community service amongst school-age youth, adolescent youth, and young adults. We have since evolved and consolidated our programming, offering service-based fellowships between high school and college matriculated students.
The Gem Project works to improve high school to college student engagement, while supporting on-time graduation rates, through peer-mentoring, life-skill workshops and service-learning initiatives that take on a social justice approach.
Since its inception, The Gem Project has impacted the lives of over 2000 youth and young adults. Our programs provide youth and young adults with financial awards/scholarships, employment and a supportive cohort community. Through our growing partnerships, we have also been able to provide student travel opportunities, stipends, free test preparation, and access to diverse employment. The Gem Project has been honored and/or recognized by The White House (Barack Obama Administration), Forbes Magazine, Forbes.com, News12 New Jersey, National Journal, The Atlantic Media, Black Enterprise.com, GOOD magazine, NJ.com, Rutgers Magazine and others.
