A natural outgrowth and expansion for the contribution of the highly successful "Dr. Betty Shabazz Delta Academy: Catching the Dreams of Tomorrow", the Dr. Jeanne L. Nobles Delta G.E.M.S. Institute was created to "catch the dreams" of African-American, at-risk, adolescent girls ages 14-18. The Delta G.E.M.S. provides the framework to actualize those dreams through performance of specific tasks that develop a "CAN DO" attitude.
The goals of the Delta GEMS Institute is to:
instill the need to excel academically;
provide tools that enable girls to sharpen and enhance their skills to achieve high levels of academic success;
assist girls in proper goal-setting and planning for their futures-high school and beyond; and to
create compassionate, caring, and community minded young women by actively involving them in-service learning and community service opportunities.
