Educational Development

The Educational Development Committee was created to implement public service programs centered on the Sorority’s educational programmatic thrust through Delta Academy, Delta G.E.M.S. and Teen Forum.

The goals of the Marietta-Roswell Alumnae Chapter (MRAC) Educational Development Committee are to:

  • Impact the lives of the students we serve in a positive manner
  • Creatively plan and implement relevant programs and projects
  • Encourage and stimulate academic and social development.

Delta Academy

Delta Academy is a mentoring program created out of an urgent sense that bold action is needed to save our young women from the perils of academic failure, low self-esteem, and negative images in society.

The goals of the program are to focus on the social, physical and emotional development of our young women in grades 6-8 and to prepare them for full participation as leaders in the 21st Century. We provide structured learning activities that focus on topics such as self-esteem, empowerment, education, community/public service, leadership skills, healthy eating and exercising, and enhancing their talents and interests.

The Marietta-Roswell Alumnae Chapter (MRAC) of Delta Sigma Theta Sorority, Incorporated invites girls ages 11-14 (grades 6-8) to apply for the 2021-2022 Dr. Betty Shabazz Delta Academy Program.

Our program meets in person 9:30 a.m. – 12:30 p.m. on a designated Saturday each month. Participation in each session is expected.
