“GEMS On The GO” provides virtual meeting space for girls during social isolation

Posted at 9:43 AM, May 04, 2020

GEMS Girls' Clubs launched a new online initiative to assist tween girls suffering from social distancing during the COVID-19 pandemic.

"GEMS on the Go" provides a virtual meeting space for girls to keep them connected to one another, while also providing helpful resources to their parents.

GEMS hopes to provide a safe and welcoming meeting place for girls between the ages of 9 and 12, where they can find activities and encouragement for their emotional and spiritual needs, as well as provide simple resources parents can use to keep their tween girls engaged and connected.

GOTG was created as GEMS clubs in North America and around the world were forced to end early due to worldwide quarantining. As clubs closed and girls were distanced from friends and relationships, GEMS saw the need to bring the club experience to all girls, not just those enrolled in their program.

GOTG will provide age appropriate, relevant games, activities, recipes and even badge experience opportunities. There is no cost to access GOTG.
