Educational Development

The Quaker City Alumnae Chapter sponsors a number of programs focused on the educational development of the youth in our service area. We implement two of the sorority's national programs:


The Dr. Betty Shabazz Delta Academy provides an opportunity to enrich and enhance the education that our young teens receive in public schools across the nation.  Specifically, we augment their scholarship in math, science, and technology, their opportunities to provide service in the form of leadership through service learning defined as the cultivation and maintenance of  relationships. ​This program is for girls 11 to 14. 

The Dr. Jeanne L. Noble Delta GEMS was created to catch the dreams of African American American at-risk, adolescent girls aged 14-18. 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
  • To provide tools that enable girls to sharpen and enhance their skills to achieve high levels of academic success;
  • To assist girls in proper goal setting and planning for their futures high school and beyond; and
  •  To create compassionate, caring, and community minded young women by actively involving them in service learning and community service opportunities for girls ages 14 to 18
