deltagemslogo03-2

The Dr. Jeanne L. Noble Delta GEMS Institute, is a continuum of services that address the needs of young African American women in grades 9 through 12 (ages 14 to 18) with a framework for the participants to discover and understand their individual brilliance by embracing the AIMS of the GEMS theme “Growing and Empowering Myself Successfully.”

Delta GEMS provides the framework to actualize those dreams through the performance of specific tasks
that develop a CAN DO attitude. The goals for Delta GEMS are to:

    Instill the need to excel academically;
    Provide tools that enable girls to sharpen and enhance their skills to achieve high levels of academic success;
    Assist girls in proper goal setting and planning for their futures high school and beyond; and
    Create compassionate, caring, and community minded young women by actively involving them in-service learning and community service opportunities.

The Delta GEMS framework is composed of five major components (Scholarship, Sisterhood, Show Me
the Money, Service, and Infinitely Complete), forming a road map for college and career planning. Topics
within the five major components are designed to provide interactive lessons and activities that provide
opportunities for self-reflection and individual growth.
