Upstate G.E.M.S. (Going the Extra Mile for Success) is an organization that provides preventive and empowerment programs for young ladies. We strive to enhance their lives through programs, workshops, and events that result in the increase of confidence, courage, smart choices, educational and, personal development.
Upstate G.E.M.S. is a perfect opportunity for young ladies to meet others, form a lifelong bond of sisterhood and create lasting memories by encouraging young ladies to become positive change agents for themselves and for others.
G.E.M.S. envisions an environment where young ladies will have the knowledge, skills, and attitude they need to be successful citizens and to reach their highest potential in life. Our Scholarship Pageant is dedicated to partnering with parents in helping to shape the character of all young ladies ages 5-19. Participants will have the opportunity as category winners to be awarded trophies, sashes, and, tiaras.LEARN MORE
