The Dr. Betty Shabazz Delta Academy is one of our sorority’s national initiative programs designed for young ladies ages 11-14 years. The goals of Delta Academy are to shape well-rounded young women and enhance or spark interest in math, science, technology and/or careers where minority women are scarcely represented. The Dr. Betty Shabazz Delta Academy’s aim is to focus on providing experiences and opportunities to enhance academic, social, and intellectual development. Many young ladies have tremendous potential, however they are not afforded the opportunity to broaden themselves, express their curiosity, and experience new and different things early on.
During the Delta Academy sessions, activities are centered around character development, such as self-esteem, self-motivation, and developing life skills. These participants will also learn about healthy choices, the importance of community service, literacy through book club participation; as well as; African American history. In addition, field trips are planned to various destinations to give these young girls a chance to ignite an interest for their future. Every 2nd Sunday, these young ladies will experience endless possibilities of what they can achieve.
