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
  • Provide tools that enable girls to sharpen and enhance their skills to achieve high levels of academic success
  • Assist girls in proper goal setting and planning for their futures high school and beyond
  • 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.

 

The goals of the Annapolis Alumnae Chapter’s Gems program are to instill the need to excel academically, to assist in proper goal setting and planning for the future, 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 activities that provide opportunities for self-reflection and individual growth. Additionally, embedded within the program is a component in Science, Technology, Engineering, and Mathematics (STEM), which is implemented through the Chapter’s “Thelma T. Daley STEM Initiative” designed to create an interest in STEM in elementary and middle school youth throughout Anne Arundel County.
