Uncompromising Commitment to Communities: Service, Leadership, Empowerment

Growing & Empowering Myself Successfully 

A natural outgrowth and expansion for the continuation of the highly successful  Dr. Betty Shabazz 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. Delta GEMS aspires to assist the girls with goal setting and planning for the future. The goals for Delta GEMS are to develop strong, confident, respectful young ladies and prepare them to take an active role in their success and society.  The Delta GEMS framework is composed of five major components (Scholarship, Sisterhood, Show Me the Money, Service, and Infinitely Complete), forming a road map for college and career planning. Topics within the five major components are designed to provide interactive lessons and activities that provide opportunities for self-reflection and individual growth.

Delta GEMS meetings are held on the third Saturday of each month from September to June.
