What's Right with Your Community: GEMS


By Alabama News Network

It takes certain characteristics to be a leader in your job or your community.

And a program at one Montgomery school is teaching young ladies what it takes to be a good leader - in hopes they will carry these traits with them throughout their life.

The GEMS program is a group of 35 girls at TS Morris Elementary school who mentor fellow students, help teachers, and volunteer in the community, all in hopes of teaching them leadership skills.
