Dear Friend, Winter has been inspiring and productive here at GEMS, even with all the snow! I recent ly conducted a two day intensive training with our amazing Youth Leadership Interns on honing their training and outreach skills and handling some of the specific challenges that come up when you’re training on an issue that you’ve had personal experience with. As survivors, our voices and experiences are critical in educating and raising awareness but it’s not about us just telling our ‘stories’, but about using solid training skills to communicate our diverse ideas, critical analysis and insight.
And it’s up to organizations and policy makers to provide both the professional development and the platform for survivors to grow as leaders.

With fall here and everyone headed back to school, we are celebrating the educational achievements of our girls and young women!
At our recent Educational Initiative award ceremony, we recognized 17 new members in the program, 4 graduates from the pilot program GED for MOMS, and three high school & GED graduates! Two members completed the New York State Certified Nurse-Aid Training, one member earned a Security Guard Certificate, and 15 members successfully completed the spring 2012 semester. We also awarded five scholarships, generously funded by V-Day. I am so proud of each one of our girls and young women who are making significant strides toward their educational and career goals!
