Delta G.E.M.S.

The Dr. Jeanne L. Noble Delta GEMS (Growing & Empowering Myself Successfully) program is a natural outgrowth and expansion of the highly successful “Dr. Betty Shabaaz Delta Academy” created to “catch the dreams” of at-risk, adolescent girls aged 14-18.


The Delta GEMS program is geared toward inspiring and enriching young women and provides the framework to actualize those dreams through the performance of specific tasks that develop a “CAN DO” attitude. Program activities are centered around leadership, community outreach, public service, cultural awareness, dealing with peer pressure, image building, and developing strong, confident and respectful young ladies by striving to prepare them to take active roles in their success and in society at-large.
The goals of the Delta G.E.M.S program are:

  • To develop strong, confident and respectful young ladies and prepare them to take an active role in their success and society. To instill in girls the need to excel academically.
  • To provide tools that will enable girls to sharpen and enhance their skills to achieve high levels of academic successes.
  • To assist girls in proper goal-setting and planning for their futures.
  • To create compassionate, caring, and community minded young women by actively involving them in service learning and community service opportunities.
