Youth Initiative Program Application – Delta Academy

The Greenville (SC) Alumnae Chapter of Delta Sigma Theta Sorority, Inc. is pleased to announce the Dr. Betty Shabazz Delta Academy is currently accepting applications for the 2020-2021 virtual program year.

Delta Academy was created out of the Sorority’s bold determination to save our young African-American girls (ages 11-14) from academic failure, low self-esteem and to expose them to worlds beyond their imagination. The primary goal of the program is to prepare young girls for full participation as leaders in the 21st century.
