GEMSDr. Jeanne Noble Delta GEMS

A natural outgrowth and expansion for the continuation of the highly successful  Dr. Betty Shabaaz Delta Academy: Catching the Dreams of Tomorrow, Delta GEMS (Growing and Empowering Myself Successfully) was created to catch the dreams of African American  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. 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 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.
