DELTA

               Academy

The Dr. Betty Shabazz Delta Academy was established under the leadership of the 21st National President, Marcia L. Fudge. The Delta Academy program is designed to offer young women exposure to the fields of Science, Technology, Engineering and Math (STEM). This is accomplished through a curriculum that also incorporates the development of positive attitudes, effective problem-solving skills, confidence, and other skills/tools to help build a solid plan for the future. We also show them the many and varied opportunities that are open to them in the STEM career fields. Our primary goal is to prepare young girls for full participation as leaders in the 21st century. 

The Transformation of Me… Knowing Me, Developing Me, Preparing Me

The program schedule includes workshops, hands-on activities, guest speakers and museum visits. In addition to STEM-related activities, we also try to encourage leadership and active participation in the community. The committee works hard to keep members and parents informed of STEM-related activities and opportunities happening in our community. When possible, we will incorporate those events into the schedule. 

NoVAC’s Delta Academy program focuses on adolescent girls between the ages of 11 - 14 and/or grades 6 – 8 in the Northern Virginia area. 

The Delta Academy is designed for young women who: 

o Demonstrate great academic and personal promise 

o Show interest in developing leadership skills 

o Show interest in community action and social change 

o Show interest in non-traditional STEM careers 

 

During the program year, meeting times/locations will be scheduled with advanced notice.
