The Schaumburg-Hoffman Estates Alumnae Chapter of Delta Sigma Theta Sorority 2018 Youth Educational Development Programs will begin on January 13th, 2018.  Since 1991 the chapter has used their talents, skills, training and other resources to execute ideas, implement programs and support activities to make a difference in the lives of the underserved and underprivileged.  We regularly review, survey and modify our programs to ensure we are meeting the needs and interest of the community.  Continue with our effort we proudly announce the programs and themes for 2018:

 

Dr. Betty Shabazz Delta Academy
Delta Academy will provide leadership development, service and academic opportunities for young ladies ages 11-14 years old to prepare them for the 21st century and beyond.  Activities will expose participants to science and math curriculum, community service projects, career exploration and personal development. 

DELTA GEMS

G.E.M.S. stands for Growing and Empowering Myself Successfully and is a program aimed at catching the dreams of African-American girls aged 14-18.  This program is an extension of our successful Delta Academy  program for Jr. High School girls.  G.E.M.S. provides the framework to actualize those dreams through the performance of specific tasks that can develop a “CAN DO” attitude.  The program offers a road map for college and career planning, conducts activities  that provide opportunities  for self-reflection and individual growth.

EMBODI
EMBODI stands for Empowering Males to Build Opportunities for Developing Independence and is a program for African American male ages 13-18.  Informal and empirical data suggests that the vast majority of African-American males continues to be in crisis and is not reaching its fullest potential educationally, socially and emotionally. EMBODI is designed to address these issues through dialogue and recommendations for change and action. EMBODI addresses issues related to STEM education, culture, self-efficacy, leadership, physical and mental health, healthy lifestyles choices, character, ethics, relationships, college readiness, fiscal management, civic engagement and service learning.

 

While each program has a target age group and theme the overall goals remain consistent which is to:
              *To instill the need to excel academically
              *T
o provide tools that enable young women and men to sharpen and enhance their skills to                           achieve high levels of academic success;

              *To assist young women and men in proper goal setting and planning for their futures – Jr. High,                 High School and Beyond; and
              *
To create compassionate, caring, and community minded young women and men by actively                       involving them in service learning and community service opportunities
