Dr. Jeanne L. Noble Growing and Empowering Myself Successfully G.E.M.S. Institute

Created in 2004 to help African-American young women realize their dreams. The program targets girls between the ages of 14 and 18 who are
“at risk” of not achieving academic success for various reasons. In 2007, the Executive Board voted unanimously to rename the program, the
Dr. Jeanne L. Noble GEMS Institute, honoring her memory and her lifelong commitment to promoting academic achievement and excellence.

Dr. Betty Shabazz Academy

Provides an opportunity for local chapters to collaborate with or work independently on an educational program for “at-risk” young women between the ages of 11 and 14. The program offers mentoring, educational activities, and service learning opportunities to the participants. The Delta Academy Program’s major emphasis is social and emotional development, physiological transitioning and exposure to global ideas and learning opportunities. Anchored in the basic tenets of the Sorority which are Sisterhood, Scholarship, and Service, the Delta Academy also features a Book Club for the girls and a health education component that imparts awareness on the HIV/AIDS disease. Recently, a new module on Parenting Education was added to involve parents in the Delta Academy Program.

 Empowering Males to Build Opportunities for Developing Independence 
Our newest educational development initiative, addresses the plight of the African- American male and has successfully been launched in each region of the sorority.

The EMBODI program is designed to refocus the efforts of Delta Sigma Theta Sorority, Inc., with the support and action of other major organizations, on the plight of African-American males. Both informal and empirical data suggests that the vast majority of African-American males continues to be in crisis and is not reaching its fullest potential educationally, socially and emotionally. EMBODI is designed to address these issues through dialogue and recommendations for change and action. EMBODI addresses issues related to STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics) education, culture, self-efficacy, leadership, physical and mental health, healthy lifestyles choices, character, ethics, relationships, college readiness, fiscal management, civic engagement and service learning.
