Goddess on the Go gives back & works closely with GEMS and The Power Of You Teens
A portion of all Goddess On The Go proceeds goes to support Girls Educational & Mentoring Services (GEMS), the only organization in New York State specifically designed to serve girls and young women who have experienced commercial sexual exploitation and domestic trafficking. Leora Edut first began working with GEMS in 2009 to create a day of beauty where the girls had an opportunity to relax and be taken care of fully. What became true to Leora was the importance of bringing knowledge and tools of self-love, self-care, health, sisterhood, and fun into these girls’ world. Leora continues to work bi-weekly with GEMS, introducing new teachings and workshops around the important areas of living a full and balanced life. “It is truly an honor to work with my girls,” says Leora. “I’ve seen so much self-love, compassion, and extreme growth develop in each one of them.”
The Power of You Teens (POYT), a 501(c)(3) non-profit empowerment and mentoring organization created to inspire girls to dream big and provide them with the tools they need to reach their full potential. Our mission is to encourage girls, between the ages of 10-19, to think creatively and believe there is no limit to what they can achieve!
We have been serving girls in the Harlem community since July 2014. Through our workshops and mentorship programs, we create a safe, fun and inspirational environment that ignites the spark for girls to be Brave, Bold and Brilliant. We encourage character development and academic achievement and prepare our PowerGirls to be Confident, College Bound and Career Ready. Our organization also connects our PowerGirls with positive role models and dynamic mentors of excellence.
