Mission Statement

Girls Empowered by Mentoring
Farmers Branch Carrollton AAUW

Girls Empowered by Mentoring (GEM) is designed to bring together experienced women with young women in CFBISD Early College High School. These relationships are intended to empower the students to reach their full potential, navigate effective ways to continue their education and to build self-confidence.  The young women will be referred to as “scholars”.

We welcome your interest in being a mentor for a young lady at the Carrollton Farmers Branch ISD Early College High School (ECHS) located on the campus of Brookhaven College. This program begins before the academic year in August and ends in May of each year. A mentor is asked to commit to that entire length of time, about 3 hours a month. Our goal is to help these scholars be successful in their academic career through problem solving and behavioral growth.
