More information about  Girls Empowered Mentally for Success (GEMS) seeks to create healthy developmentally appropriate transitions for girls, as they move forward from one grade to the next. The mission of the organization is to empower elementary, middle, and high school girls by helping them to discover their passion and purpose through their own innate creativity and wisdom. These girls experience low graduation rates, violent behaviors, mental health issues, and interaction with the criminal justice system. They represent a large percentage of high risk behaviors among girls enrolled in Hillsborough County Schools. The Girls Empowerment Tour seeks to increase graduation rates, decrease teen pregnancy, and minimize the victimization of girls from human trafficking.
