  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 high school aged girls (Freshmen - Seniors). Delta GEMS provides the frame work to actualize those dreams through performance of specific tasks that develop a "CAN DO" attitude.

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.

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.
