Delta GEMS



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

  • To instill the need to excel academically
  • To provide tool that enable girls to sharpen and enhance their skills to achieve high levels of success
  • To assist in proper goal setting and planning for their futures; high school and beyond
  • 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.
