Growing and Empowering Myself SuccessfullyDeltaGEMS

The Dr. Jeanne L. Noble Delta GEMS Institute was a natural outgrowth and expansion for the
continuation of the highly successful Dr. Betty Shabazz Delta Academy.  The Delta GEMS program
honors the 12th National President of Delta Sigma Theta Sorority, Inc., Dr. Jeanne L. Noble, a
legendary pioneer in the field of education.

It was created to catch the dreams of African American at-risk adolescent girls (ages 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 of the 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; and
To create compassionate, caring, and community minded young women by actively involving them in service learning and community service opportunities.
