Organization Mission: Speak Life and Live's general purpose is to provide supportive social services that strengthen the family, promote well-being and inspire women to live at a higher level by encouraging them to walk in faith and God's redeeming love.

Project: To help 20 students attend the GEMS program. Our goal is to make these life preparatory skills available to all students regardless of their socioeconomic status. 

Impact:  Growing Empowering Mentoring for Success (G.E.M.S.), a program designed to empower and provide adequate tools and encouragement to help individuals become successful in their lives and society. Participants learn and have the opportunity to explore successful leadership strategies and acquire a broad understanding of the meaning of leadership and the qualities of a leader such as:

  • A stronger and stable sense of self and others' view of themselves.
  •  Healthy habits that will help reduce health problems in the future and increase longevity
  •  Effective communication skills
  • Bullying, self-awareness, reaction, and positive relationship
  • Conflict resolution support and teach participants negotiating and decisions making skills that will increase responsibility and self-directed behaviors.

These funds will allow Speak Life and Live to provide the Gems program which spans from 6-8 weeks with 3 different sessions and is open to girls aged 5 – 19.

Client Experience:  "I really enjoyed G.E.M.S. class. It was a confidence booster for myself and my daughter. It helped me get through things with her such as the importance of good hygiene. Also, it helped build my self-confidence. If gave me the opportunity to evaluate myself, and it showed me I am a gem!" ~ G.E.M.S. for Moms participant 

"I enjoyed the gems class. It gave me the opportunity to examine myself. With all the bullying in my school, It helped me build my self-confidence. I now know I am a beautiful, shiny stone." ~ G.E.M.S. student participant
