Girls empowerment movement
The Girls Empowerment Movement is a mentorship program for Bell County high school girls. Throughout their senior year, GEM participants attend a series of events and classes to prepare them for life after graduation. Topics include college and career choices, personal finance, and health and nutrition. The program culminates with Project Prom, a special experience providing prom dresses, graduation dresses, and accessories for the events celebrating this important life stage.
Standing for Sharing Moments in Laughter and Encouragement, Project SMILE has broad reaching impact and allows JLBC members to promote children's health and well-being in a variety of settings. Members lift spirits by hosting bingo nights at Baylor S&W McLane Children's hospital with a live feed into patients rooms as well as craft night for patients who are able to come to the multipurpose room. This project also allows JLBC to participate in the AJLI initiative Kids in the Kitchen and demonstrate that yummy and healthy can go together!
