Delta GEMS



Delta G.E.M.S. (Growing and Empowering Myself Successfully),

a natural outgrowth and expansion of Delta Academy, offers

a road map for success in high school and college, as well

as career planning. The program provides opportunities for

self-reflection and growth among African American, at-risk

adolescent girls between the ages of 14 and 18. Goals for

the program are to:

  • Instill the need to excel academically;
  • Provide tools that enable girls to achieve high levels of academic success;
  • Assist girls in proper goal-setting and planning for their futures; and,
  • Create compassionate, caring, and community-minded young women by actively involving them in service learning and community service opportunities

The Delta G.E.M.S. sponsored by the Tucson Alumnae Chapter has partnered with the Tucson Unified School District and the Sierra Vista Unified School District to reach out to more girls who may benefit from the programs in Tucson and Sierra Vista, Arizona.  Meeting locations and times are to be determined.  For more information, please feel free to leave a comment or ask a question in the engage section to the right of the page.
