The Dr. Betty Shabazz Delta Academy

The Dr. Betty Shabazz Delta Academy is a sorority-wide program intended to serve the interests of young girls. The Academy is designed to offer opportunities to young women who might otherwise be excluded because they lack the financial resources to gain access to math, science, leadership and technology experience. The Academy recognizes the disadvantages many young girls in various communities face, despite the personal potential of the girls themselves.

Our chapter is highly committed to the success of this program. As such, the Dr. Betty Shabazz Academy is free to all selected participants. Other benefits include a transportation stipend, as well as the opportunity to participate in the Academy Leadership Development Weekend, which is held every two years during the time of Delta Sigma Theta Sorority’s national convention.
