Show Your Support, Bet on GEM…

This year’s GEM’s Casino Night Fundraiser will take place on October 12th, 2019 and will be held at the Westfield Southcenter Mall 2800 Southcenter Mall, Seattle, WA 98188. GEM is also extremely excited to share this evening as a spotlight on our organization turning 5. Yes, GEM has been serving the King County community for 5 years.

 The mission of GEM is to inform, interact, and inspire youth and young adults. Through holistic mentoring every youth and young adult is empowered to be principled, responsible, critical thinkers who affect positive change in their community.

 Since our inception four years ago in the summer of 2014 Glover Empower Mentoring has engaged over 300+ youth and 30+ young adults in formal mentoring relationships, for a total of over 6,500 hours of mentoring time. For nearly two years, we have successfully grown our youth engagement and volunteer commitment—taking on an average of one new mentee per month and one new mentor per quarter.

 As you know these supports come with a cost. In a school calendar year, the cost per youth to go through GEM services three times a week is about $250. As we see 100 youth through our services per year we have set our goal at $25,000 to provide our full services to our future leaders in the community.

If you have further questions you may contact GEM at (253)277-2627 or email us at gempowermentoring@gmail.com.  We appreciate your consideration and thank you in advance for your contribution. We look forward to hearing from you.
