The Gemstone Project seeks to narrow the academic success gap between black students and their non-black peers by providing free enrichment activities. The activities will include interactive games, stories, and puzzles that encourage students in grades 4 - 6 to believe in themselves and in their ability to overcome academic deficiencies.Updates from Gemstones
Project Gemstones addresses inequities in school systems across America by providing enrichment opportunities that incorporate fun and excitement to students who live in underserved and disadvantaged neighborhoods. We provide free enrichment resources such as interactive games, stories, and puzzles that encourage students in grades 4 - 6 to believe in themselves and in their ability to overcome academic deficiencies. By leading them with empathy and kindness, we know that the youth we serve will have access to activities that will improve their self-esteem, generate positive classroom experiences, and prepare them to be vanguards in their communities.
We are excited to work on Riley's way to help educate the next generation. They have been very supportive and kind while helping us plan our project.
