DR. JEANNE L. NOBLE DELTA GEMS INSTITUTE

A natural outgrowth and expansion for the continuation of the highly successful Dr. Betty Shabazz 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 framework to actualize those dreams through the performance of specific tasks that develop a CAN DO attitude.

 

The goals for Delta GEMS are:

  1. To instill the need to excel academically;

  2. To provide tools that enable girls to sharpen and enhance their skills to achieve high levels of academic success;

  3. To assist girls in proper goal setting and planning for their futures in high school and beyond; and

  4. 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 through activities that provide opportunities for self-reflection and individual growth. Delta GEMS participants have the opportunity to define and “Discover their individual Brilliance.”
