“Free the child’s potential, and you will transform him/her into the world.”
- Maria Montessori
At Gemmes, we believe deeply in youth and their power to positively transform the world around them. We know that young people are today confronted by a fast-moving and constantly changing world, overflowing with information, and facing social, environmental and health threats.
Often underestimated, young people don’t always know their potential or how to achieve it. Facing their realities, and despite their deep idealism and sincere desire for fulfilment, it is sometimes difficult for young people to find an appropriate place and a voice.
Young people therefore need a space and ways of questioning themselves and relating to their environment, to express themselves and to act. Through its educational and creative workshops, Gemmes wants to offer opportunities to young people and create activities that complement those offered in schools.
