Delta G.E.M.S.

Delta GEMS, the acronym for Growing and Empowering Myself Successfully, was created to help African American young women grades 9-12 realize their dreams. The Delta GEMS framework is composed of five major components (Scholarship, Sisterhood, Show Me the Money, Service, and Infinitely Complete), forming a road map for college and career planning.

The goals are to instill the need to excel academically; to sharpen and enhance skills to achieve high levels of academic success; to assist in proper goal setting and planning for the future, 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.

Mentoring/bonding sessions for Delta Academy and Delta GEMS take place the third Saturday of every month from August – May (unless otherwise noted).  All mentors in the program are members of MRAC Delta Sigma Theta Sorority, Inc. and go through an extensive application and screening process. Interested young women must complete an application and be selected to participate in the programs.

Applications are no longer being accepted due to the number of applications already received. Please contact eddevelopment@mracdst.com for more details.
