EMBODI 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 (ages 14-18).
Both informal and empirical data suggests that the vast majority of African-American males, in this age
group continues to be in crisis and is not reaching its fullest potential educationally, socially and

EMBODI is designed to address these issues through dialogue and recommendations
for change and action. Participants will be exposed to a variety of academic, cultural,
and personal development activities. These activities will be delivered via a town hall meeting,
workshops, and/or teen leadership summits.

Understanding that organized collective action can achieve greater positive impact, Delta Sigma Theta
Sorority, Inc. is proud to join other service-oriented organizations and advocates who are actively
engaged in uplifting African-American males.

On May 18, 2010, we held our EMBODI Kick-Off Assembly at Franklin Square Elementary Middle
School. Male students from the elementary and middle school levels listened to a presentation on
Gang Awareness. This session marked the beginning of BMAC’s male mentoring program.
