The Savannah Alumnae Chapter of
Delta Sigma Theta Sorority, Inc.
A natural outgrowth and expansion for the continuation of the highly successful Dr. Betty Shabaaz Delta Academy: Catching the Dreams of Tomorrow, Delta Academy was created to catch the dreams of African American at-risk, adolescent girls aged 11-14.
The goals for Delta Academy are:
● To instill the need to excel academically;
● To provide tools that 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 high school and beyond;
● To create compassionate, caring, and community minded young women by actively involving them in service learning and community service opportunities.
Empowering Males to Build Opportunities for Developing Independence
The EMBODI program is designed to refocus the efforts of Delta Sigma Theta Sorority, Inc., with the support and action of other major organizations, on the plight of African American males ages 11-18 years of age.
Both informational and empirical data suggest that the vast majority of African American males continue to be in crisis and are not reaching their fullest potential educationally, socially and emotionally.
EMBODI is designed to address these issues through dialogue, and recommendations for change and action.
As a character development program for young men, EMBODI participants will participate in community service activities, provide opportunities for interaction with community professionals and positive male role models, and provide access to and application of diverse learning opportunities through cultural and community support.
