In the Georgia Education Mentorship (GEM) Program, students are matched with leaders in fields such as business, education, politics, healthcare, law, and industry, many of whom are members of the Georgia Chamber of Commerce Board of Directors.  These executives serve as mentors for participating students and support their personal and professional growth by providing opportunities for them to learn about the principles of leadership and success that benefit the professional world and the community.

Participating students also take part in leadership and professional development programs on the GCSU campus which allows them to build relationships with their fellow participants, discuss the lessons they are learning from their mentors, and develop skills that will help them meet the challenges of the professional world. 

This year-long mentorship offers a direct connection between classroom knowledge and real world experience, and in doing so, provides an opportunity for the leaders of today and the leaders of tomorrow to work together to build a brighter future for our communities and our state.

Established in 2002, and initially funded by the Robert W. Woodruff Foundation, GEM is a creative partnership between GCSU and the Georgia Chamber of Commerce.
