Award winning, Delta Academy & GEMS

Overview

Catching the Dreams of Tomorrow, Preparing Young Women For the 21st Century: 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

Story

Delta Academy provides an opportunity to enrich and enhance the education that our young teens receive in public schools across the nation. We augment their scholarship in math, science, and technology, their opportunities to provide service in the form of leadership through service learning defined as the cultivation and maintenance of relationships.
