Named after Dr. Betty Shabazz, the Delta Academy was created out of an urgent sense that bold action was needed to save our young females (ages 11-14) from the perils of academic failure, low self-esteem, and crippled futures. Delta Academy provides an opportunity for our chapter to enrich and enhance the education among young teens. A primary goal of the program is to prepare young girls for full participation as leaders in the 21st Century.
Delta Academy has taken many forms. The activities implemented include academic, self-esteem and etiquette workshops; field trips; and special outings to cultural events.
