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 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, like Delta Academy, is implemented by chapters of Delta Sigma Theta.
