Noble GEMS Institute are to provide tools that enable girls to sharpen and enhance their skills to achieve high levels of academic success and to assist in the proper goal setting, decision making and planning for their futures. It is also our goal for the participants to discover and appreciate the role that education, self-esteem and community play in reaching your fullest potential. We hope to accomplish this goal by giving personal and group attention to the young ladies, while promoting the principles of Scholarship, Service and Sisterhood.
