Our mission is to empower global citizens to achieve their God-given potential. We achieve this by providing excellent programs taught by dedicated, certified tutors and teachers and by being attentive to the needs of our students.
Our vision is to strengthen immigrant communities, to develop relationships and to deepen trust and understanding among people from different ethnic, cultural, and religious backgrounds in order that every individual might reach their greatest goals.
Ultimately, our organization is built upon love: love for our community, love for our neighbors, love for education, and more importantly, love for others in a way that is similar to how we love ourselves.
Loving our community and neighbors is to love and care for others in the same was that we care for ourselves.
Loving others is to be patient and kind. We value using kind encouraging words, helping others, and respecting others with our words and actions — both in and out of the classroom.
Loving others is not being envious of knowledge, accomplishments, or possessions and not boasting about our own.
Loving others is not insisting on our own way. We value putting others first rather than becoming irritable and resentful when things don’t go our way. We value letting others speak and listening well and learning from each other.
Loving others means not rejoicing in someone else’s mistakes - in our educational setting or in our lives. We value honesty in our work, truthful speech, wholesome conversation, and encouraging others.
This is what we strive for above all at GEmS.
Love is patient and kind; love does not envy or boast; it is not arrogant or rude. It does not insist on its own way; it is not irritable or resentful; it does not rejoice at wrongdoing, but rejoices with the truth. Love bears all things, believes all things, hopes all things, endures all things . . .
Love, joy, peace, patience, kindness, goodness, faithfulness, gentleness, self-control; against such things there is no law.
So whatever you wish that others would do to you, do also to them, for this is the Law and the Prophets.
