Your daughter has an opportunity to join Delta Academy a mentoring program.
The mentoring program is designed to help increase self-esteem and motivation, discover how school and the world of work are connected, and to develop life skills necessary to be successful in school and at a future career. This program will also expose young girls to activities that they may not have the opportunity to explore. Mentoring is the process of establishing a relationship between a young person (ages 11-14) and someone more senior in age and experience who offers support, guidance, and concrete assistance as the younger person enters new experiences, takes on difficult tasks, or goes through a difficult period.

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:
- To instill the need to excel academically;
- To provide tools that enable girls to sharpen and enhance their skills to achieve high levels of academic success;
- To assist girls in proper goal setting and planning for their futures in high school and beyond; and
- To create compassionate, caring, and community-minded young women by actively involving them in service learning and community service opportunities.
