About GEM Schools
GEM works with many wonderful schools in the US and around the world. We work with schools on single programs, as well as full year projects.

GEM is honored to work with schools and students who have dedicated their time and efforts to achieve the Millennium Development Goals, promote Human Rights, and make the world a better place. Below are a few of the schools with which we work and the projects they have undertaken.


Omega School - Chennai, Tamil Nadu, India
Each year, the students at the Omega School International engage passionately in the topic selected for the Student Leadership Conference on Development at the UN. Students spend months preparing for the conference, drafting the plan of action, and getting others excited on social media.

In 2017, students celebrated the International Day for Happiness with a large event in their school to promote Happiness and global awareness.



St. Joseph High School - Hammonton, USA
St. Joe's has been the host of UN Day NJ since 2010. Students at St. Joseph prepare in advance by becoming proficient in their chosen subthemes. Students then help by facilitating the discussion groups and ensuring that all of the students from guest schools in attendance are well cared-for.

Students at St. Joseph high school work throughout the school year on issues of global importance and engage in volunteer projects according to those issues.


Colegio Carol Baur - Mexico City, MX
Throughout the year, Colegio Carol Baur engages in countless international exchanges, videoconferences, travel abroad trips, and global education efforts.

Each year, the school hosts Foro Juvenil de Diálogo Internacional, an international youth dialogue that attracts students from across the Americas. Learn more here.


Jamaica Gateway to the Sciences High School - Queens, New York, USA
Students at Gateway to the Sciences delve into a plethora of global issues each school year. Students raise awareness, donate, and create projects - all to support the achievement of the Sustainable Development Goals. In 2017, students made a video about Happiness. View it here.
