Catching the Dreams of Tomorrow, Preparing Young Women For the 21st Century. 


The Delta Academy was created 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. 


The Delta Academy provides an opportunity to enrich and enhance the education that our young teens receive in public schools in the Albany area. Specifically, we augment their scholarship in science, technology, engineering and math their opportunities to provide service in the form of leadership through service learning (community service involvement), sisterhood, health and beauty, self-esteem and etiquette workshops. A primary goal of the program is to prepare young girls for full participation as leaders in the 21st Century.


Delta Academy meetings are held from 10:00 a.m. to 2:00 p.m. on the third Saturday of each month from September to June.

DELTA GEMS

Growing & Empowering Myself Successfully


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 frame work to actualize those dreams through the performance of specific tasks that develop a CAN DO attitude. Delta GEMS aspires to assist the girls with goal setting and planning for the future. 


The goals for Delta GEMS are to develop strong, confident, respectful young ladies and prepare them to take an active role in their success and society.  


The Delta GEMS 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 GEMS meetings are held on the third Saturday of each month from September to June.
