Dr. Betty Shabazz Delta Academy

Open to all girls ages 11-14 years old

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

The Dr. Betty Shabazz Delta Academy was established under the leadership of Marcia L. Fudge, the 21st National President of Delta Sigma Theta Sorority, Inc. as a way of developing new purpose, new skills and new leaders from the ranks of 11 to 14-year-old young women.
Recognizing that many of today’s young women do not have the opportunities to fully develop their personal and academic potential, the San Antonio Alumnae Chapter, of Delta Sigma Theta Sorority, Inc. seeks to offer supervised and structured experiences that will help participants grow to be productive citizens with high self- esteem and an appreciation for the demands of an increasingly technological society.

The Academy usually meets on the first Saturday of the month, unless noted otherwise on the Delta Academy calendar.

Open to all girls ages 14-18 years old


The Dr. Jeanne L. Noble Delta G.E.M.S Program was established in 2004 to provide a vehicle of change for young ladies between the ages of 14 and 18 to enhance their abilities and increase their self-worth, in order to achieve academic and Black girl excellence. The program’s mission is to provide young ladies with an opportunity to enhance their self-esteem, academic achievement, leadership skills, and cultural awareness. Through structured activities those who participate will evolve emotionally, socially, and intellectually and be prepared to take an active role in their success as they face the challenges of life.
