Educational Development

We currently support two major initiatives focused on the development of our youth: IMAGES program for girls and EMBODI (Empowering Males to Build Opportunities for Developing Independence).


The IMAGES Program (Delta GEMS) represents a natural outgrowth and extension for the continuation of the acclaimed Dr. Betty Shabazz Delta Academy.  It spotlights teenage girls from ages 13-18, in Santa Clara County.  IMAGES young women are identified by schools, churches, youth groups, and/or former IMAGES participants.
The IMAGES program, a community service project of the San Jose Alumnae Chapter of Delta Sigma Theta Sorority, Inc., centers on developing strong, confident, and respectful young ladies by striving to prepare them to take active roles in their success and in society at-large.  It serves as a motivational tool for African-American teenage girls with the ultimate goal of increasing their knowledge and awareness of issues affecting women of color today.  The objectives of the program will be accomplished through a variety of workshops that promote: Scholarship, Sisterhood, Financial Awareness, and Service.

EMBODI is a national program initiative of Delta Sigma Theta Sorority, Inc. for African-American young men from ages 11-18.  The goals of EMBODI are to expand the horizons of young African American males by cultivating a personal vision for their lives; to provide tools for young African American males with an awareness of various college and career options so that they can make rewarding life choices and decisions; and, to create community-minded young males by actively involving them in service learning and community service opportunities.  This program ultimately seeks to assist young men in their social and emotional growth.  Meetings are open to young men residing in Santa Clara County.
