Delta GEMS: Delta GEMS is a free unique program designed for young ladies in high school. Catching the dreams of tomorrow, Delta GEMS was created to catch the dreams of African-American at-risk, adolescent girls aged 14-18. Delta GEMS provides the framework to actualize those dreams through the performance of specific tasks that develop a CAN DO attitude. We aim to provide them with opportunities to develop leadership skills through service learning as well as create and maintain relationships through sisterhood. During GEMS monthly sessions, activities are centered on goal setting, self-esteem, academics, college and career planning. Delta GEMS aims to offer opportunities to young women of great promise who might otherwise be excluded due to lack of support, resources, and encouragement.
