Les Gemmes was founded by four childhood friends in April 1955 in Norfolk, Virginia. Later, together with other young ladies of similar ideals and interests, these four met to form the original Les Gemmes (French—“the jewels”) Civic, Social and Savings Club.
The strengths of the Organization have come from the unity and collective resources of its membership. Through the years, Les Gemmes has adopted programmatic goals to reach citizens throughout the United States. Current goals are in the area of Health, Education & Economics, Arts, Recruitment & Retainment, Technology, and Youth.
