Delta GEMS (Growing and Empowering Myself Successfully) was created to catch the dreams of African-American 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.

 

The goals for Delta GEMS are:

• To instill the need to excel academically
• To develop effective written and oral communication skills
• To encourage self-confidence, self-motivation, and self-discipline
• To foster meaningful public service; including mentoring and networking
• To assist with the exploration of various career paths and means for         

   obtaining them
• To support talents in academics, technology, sports, and fine arts

The Delta GEMS program offers a road map for college and career planning through activities that provide opportunities for self-reflection and individual growth. Delta GEMS participants have the opportunity to define and “Discover their individual Brilliance!”
