Middle School Program for Girls Ages 11-14
In 1996, the Dr. Betty Shabazz Delta Academy was created to academically support our young African-American middle school girls and to expose them to worlds beyond their imagination. Our Delta Academy programs place particular emphasis on ensuring that our young girls are ready and prepared to be leaders in the ever-changing world of the 21st Century, through science, technology, engineering, art and mathematics (STEAM).
2023-2024 Theme: HerSTORY - Growing Into My Power with S.T.E.A.M!
High School Program for Girls Ages 14-18
Since its inception in 2004, the Delta GEMS Institute was designed to provide a vehicle of change for young African-American high school ladies to enhance their abilities and increase their self-worth, in order to achieve academic and excellence. As we strive for the GEMS to "discover their brilliance," the program enriches young women's academic success and help develop compassionate, caring, and community-minded individuals. With a focus on STEM, the program engages young women in the discovery of career options, college preparation, and learning about our rich culture and heritage.
We know that many of today's young women find themselves in environments that may not fully support their personal and academic development. They may feel ignored or left behind at school, at home, or in their community at the very point in their lives when they are most in need of attention, support, and encouragement. Delta Sigma Theta's youth programs are designed to create an additional support system for parents and their daughters. As Delta women, we aim to share our resources and energies with the young queens in our community to develop new purposes, new skills, and new leaders.
This year's program will be held in-person and will include an array of educational, cultural and community services experiences around Arizona.

Parent meeting and orientation will be held on October 21, 2023 at 10 a.m.
Since our founding in 1913, Delta Sigma Theta has promoted academic excellence and the importance of education. Likewise, Tempe Alumnae started its scholarship program when we were chartered in 1973 with our "bookships" that helped local high school students cover the costs of books and supplies. Thanks to the generous support of donors and the success of our fundraisers, the program has grown to provide more than $150,000 to support Arizona students as they pursue their educational goals.
We offer two scholarship categories in honor of two of our chapter charter members:
