Delta GEMS

A natural outgrowth and expansion for the continuation of the highly successful Dr. Betty Shabaaz Delta Academy: Catching the Dreams of Tomorrow, Delta Gems was created to catch the dreams of African American at-risk, adolescent girls aged 14-18. Delta GEMS provides the frame work to actualize those dreams through the performance of specific tasks that develop a CAN DO attitude. The goals for Delta GEMS are:

● To instill the need to excel academically

● To provide tools that enable girls to sharpen and enhance their skills to achieve high levels of academic success;

● To assist girls in proper goal setting and planning for their futures high school and beyond; and

● To create compassionate, caring, and community minded young women by actively involving them in service learning and community service opportunities.

The Delta GEMS program offers a road map for college and career planning conducts activities that provide opportunities for self-reflection and individual growth. Delta GEMS, like Delta Academy, is implemented by chapters of Delta Sigma Theta Sorority, Inc.
