About

 

OUR MISSION

Delta Education and Leadership Training Academy Executive Board of Members and Advisory Board Members devote their time, talents, funds and resources toward collaborative efforts to assist and support volunteer community service and mentoring our youth in reaching their full potential.

OUR ORIGINS

In 2006, community leaders joined together to form Delta Education and Leadership Training Academy (DeltaEd), a 501 (c) (3) public charity. DeltaEd has two primary purposes: (1) obtaining financial resources to support ongoing volunteer community service programs such as mentoring workshops for youth, leadership training, and financial aid for higher education; and (2) offering life skills training for youth; providing them with the information and tools to make better personal, educational, and career decisions.

 

DeltaEd’s mission is achieved through volunteers who devote their time, talents, funds and connections toward collaborative efforts to assist community youth in reaching their full potential.
It is supported by an experienced Advisory Board
of community leaders including:
Congresswoman Shelley R. Berkeley, Hannah Brown, Sandy Heverly, David Jefferson, Dzidra Junior, Fred Keeton, James E. Rogers and Keith Rogers.

DeltaEd workshops supplement academic education with training on personal life skills such as banking, saving, investment, business and cultural protocol, etc. Such fundamental life skills have been shown through the body of research to be significant factors in the development of positive, productive lives.

OUR ACCOMPLISHMENTS
Some of our accomplishments include:
  • community seminars emphasizing personal financial management & job skills
  • securing underwriting for cultural exposure and protocol by sponsoring girls to theater and arts events
  • securing personal banks and financial materials to teach money management to youth
  • securing books and book bags to encourage at home reading for middle school youth
  • structuring full-day life skills seminars for 11th grade students
  • providing Man-Up “Managing Attitudes Navigating – Universal Protocol,” a program for young men in their junior year of high school
  • partnering with other non-profit organizations to benefit the Las Vegas community
