Delta G.E.M.S. Institute (Growing and Empowering Myself Successfully) is an extension of the Dr. Betty Shabazz Delta Academy program and is designed for at-risk girls ages 14 to 18 years old. Delta G.E.M.S. provides the frame work to actualize those dreams through the performance of specific tasks that develop a “CAN DO” attitude. The goals for Delta G.E.M.S. are:
- To instill the need to excel academically
- To provide tools that enable girls to enhance their skills to achieve high levels of academic success
- To assist girls in proper goal setting and planning for their futures
- To create compassionate, caring, and community minded young women by actively involving them in service learning and community service opportunities
The Delta G.E.M.S. 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.
Every 2nd Sunday, these young ladies will experience endless possibilities of what they can achieve.
