Pomona Valley Alumnae Chapter
Delta Sigma Theta Sorority, Inc.
The Dr. Betty Shabazz Delta Academy is a a unique program designed for young ladies ages 11-14. The goals of the Academy are to enhance or spark interest in math, science, technology and/or careers where minority women are scarcely represented. The Dr. Betty Shabazz Delta Academy's aim is to shape well rounded young women by focusing on African American history, literacy, character development, healthy choices and service learning. Many young ladies have tremendous potential, however they are not afforded the opportunity to broaden themselves, express their curiosity, and experience new and different things early on.
During Academy sessions, activities are centered around math, science, technology, book club, and African American history. In addition to building character, self-esteem, and giving back to the community through service learning, field trips are planned to museums and other sites designed to enhance the knowledge of the participants in the identified focus areas. These young ladies experience endless possibilities.
