DR. BETTY SHABAZZ DELTA ACADEMY
Catching the Dreams of Tomorrow,
Preparing Young Women for the 21st Century
The Delta Academy was created in 1996 out of an urgent sense that bold action was needed to save our young females (ages 11-14) from the perils of academic failure, low self-esteem, and crippled futures. Delta Academy provides an opportunity for the Rolling Hills/Palos Verdes Alumnae Chapter to enrich and enhance the education that our young teens receive in our service area. Specifically, we augment their scholarship in math, science, and technology, their opportunities to provide service in the form of leadership through service learning defined as the cultivation and maintenance of relationships. A primary goal of the program is to prepare young girls for full participation as leaders in the 21st Century.
Applications are due on Friday, September 9, 2022 (extended for fall applicants).
