Delta GEMS

Delta GEMS (Growing & Empowering Myself Successfully), is an expansion and continuation of the highly successful Dr. Betty Shabazz Delta Academy. Delta GEMS was created to catch the dreams of African American adolescent high school girls ages 14-18.

The Delta GEMS goals are: to instill the need to excel academically; to provide tools to 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 in 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. The Delta GEMS framework is designed to provide specific skills that develop a CAN DO attitude through interactive lessons and activities that provide opportunities for self-reflection and growth.

This year, the Delta GEMS committee is excited to provide inspiring program activities that deal with important issues such as: socialization, self-awareness, leadership development through service, advocacy, healthy lifestyle habits, educational preparation, career preparation and much more.

All online applications need to be received electronically by October 27th, 2017  GEMS who have been accepted will be notified via email. If accepted, all GEMS and parents must attend our orientation meeting during the month of November 2017.

ATTENTION:  The Cincinnati Alumnae Chapter of Delta Sigma Theta Sorority, Inc. offers the Delta GEMS program free of charge to the community. As a result we unfortunately must limit the number of participants in accordance with chapter and national policies.   Thank you for your application which will be promptly reviewed and you will be notified of the status of your application.

There is still time to submit your application.  The deadline is October 27, 2017 for submitting GEMS applications for the upcoming 2017 -2018 year.
