Delta G.E.M.S is a natural outgrowth and expansion for the continuation of the highly successful “Dr. Betty Shabaaz Delta Academy: Catching the Dreams of Tomorrow”, Delta G.E.M.S. was created to “catch the dreams” of at-risk, adolescent girls aged 14-18. 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.
Delta G.E.M.S is national signature program of the Delta Sigma Theta Sorority, Inc. and is being sponsored locally by Baltimore County Alumnae and Mu Psi Chapters.
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.
Delta G.E.M.S. is geared toward inspiring and enriching young women. Delta G.E.M.S will participate in public service projects, college preparatory workshops, bonding activities, a college tour and social outings.
