Elevating Youth: MAUI GEMS Program’ Friday of Fun, Learning, and Self-Care

Recap of Last Friday's MAUI GEMS Event:

Last Friday, May 24, 2024 the MAUI GEMS program hosted another successful event, filled with engaging activities and meaningful interactions. We are thrilled to share some highlights and exciting news with our community.

Firstly, we are proud to announce that we have received a generous grant dedicated to our MAUI GEMS program. This grant, along with the wonderful support from our recent sponsor, #4imprint, through their #onebyone program, will allow us to provide branded T-shirts for all our youth participants, fostering a sense of unity and pride within the group. We are thrilled to announce their generous $500 donation of branded products for our program!

The girls were excited to receive their new T-shirts and fantastic new ink pens, all thanks to #4imprint and #onebyone. These items are not just products; they are symbols of support and encouragement that empower our participants to achieve their full potential. A big shout-out to One by One! We are incredibly grateful and thankful for your donation. Your support helps us continue our mission to inspire and uplift young girls in our community.

The event featured impactful role-playing sessions conducted by our dedicated mentors. Sandy and Amanda led an insightful role-play, demonstrating effective communication and teamwork strategies. Similarly, Sheila and Cher engaged the youth in scenarios that highlighted problem-solving and collaboration skills. These sessions were not only educational but also highly engaging, allowing our participants to learn through active participation.

In addition to the role-playing activities, the youth worked on a summer self-care project. They explored various self-care practices, emphasizing the importance of taking care of their mental and physical well-being. The discussions provided valuable insights into how self-care can be integrated into their daily routines, ensuring they remain balanced and healthy.

We also want to extend a big mahalo to the parents who are supporting their daughters in the program. Your involvement and encouragement are invaluable, and we appreciate your dedication to their success.

The event was a perfect blend of learning and fun, leaving our participants inspired and equipped with new skills and knowledge. We are incredibly grateful to our mentors for their dedication and to the community for their unwavering support.

We kindly ask for your support to ensure the continued success of the MAUI GEMS program. Your donations will help us extend our reach and provide much-needed items for our participants. In-kind donations are also welcome. We are currently seeking a food sponsor for our Friday sessions.
