The United Way of the Inland Valleys GEMS (Girls Excelling in Mathematics with Success) is a year-long program designed to inspire a love for math and encourage STEM-related careers. This program helps them make real-world connections with math, improves mathematics performance through enrichment activities, and emphasizes critical thinking skills. We have found that participation in the program increases self-confidence and also develops relationship-building skills.

Please check out a few quotes from some of the participants below :)

“You should keep encouraging girls to increase their confidence because I know I’m not confident and it’s helping me.”

“Exceptionally interesting and fun. Inspiring and challenging. What an incredible academy.”

“My experience was awesome. I learned tons of new things. The stuff we created and built was really fun. It’s going to be sad to leave.”

“I had an awesome time. I learned things I didn’t know. I did things I never thought I would know how to do.”

“My experience at this week’s academy was super fun, and this academy made my creativity and imagination go wild.”
