About Girls Educational and Mentoring Services (GEMS) GEMS is the only organization in New York State specifically designed to serve girls and young women who have experienced commercial sexual exploitation and domestic trafficking. GEMS was founded in 1998 by Rachel Lloyd, a young woman who had been sexually exploited as a teenager. GEMS has helped hundreds of young women and girls, ages 12–24, who have experienced commercial sexual exploitation and domestic trafficking to exit the commercial sex industry and to develop to their full potential. GEMS provides young women with empathetic, consistent support and viable opportunities for positive change.


GEMS Mission, Vision & Philosophy GEMS’ mission is to empower girls and young women, ages 12–24, who have experienced commercial sexual exploitation and domestic trafficking to exit the commercial sex industry and develop to their full potential. GEMS is committed to ending commercial sexual exploitation and domestic trafficking of children by changing individual lives, transforming public perception, and revolutionizing the systems and policies that impact sexually exploited youth. GEMS’ vision is to end the commercial sexual exploitation and trafficking of children. GEMS’ philosophy is…“We believe that all girls and young women have great beauty, worth, and the potential for future success. The voices and experiences of youth survivors are integral to the development and implementation of all GEMS’ programming.”


Transforming Lives: Victims to Survivors to Leaders GEMS provides a spectrum of continuous and comprehensive services to address the needs of commercially and sexually exploited girls and young women. Commercial sexual exploitation is intrinsically linked to racism, poverty, genderbased violence, and the criminalization of youth. All of GEMS programs are based on our philosophy and values that each girl and young woman is deserving, and needs support and services to treat the trauma and violence she has experienced. GEMS believes in a multi-faceted, holistic approach to the issue of sexual exploitation. Programs include: • • • • • • • •
