Community Involvement

In June 2013, DeltaEd donated $1500 to Safe House, a domestic violence women’s shelter in the Las Vegas community.

On May 2, 2013, DeltaEd conducted an all day seminar for young men in their junior year at Cheyenne High School. MAN UP “Mature Attitudes Navigating Universal Protocol” is a program designed to teach students important personal qualities that will help them feel confident in any social situation.. The seminar will focus on skills to help students succeed in the classroom, at home, out on a date, on the job, with peers_____ in short, in life.

This highly interactive, informative program included role playing activities and instructive materials. Students will learn etiquette and protocol intelligence and application. Exercises included a dining tutorial, mock job interviews with professionals, and cover dressing for success.

Thanks to you, the 26 young ladies of Delta Academy were provided with an opportunity to see the live stage production of Drumline. Your recent generous gift to these young ladies will not only be one of their most memorable experiences but also one of exposure to the Arts and African American culture.

The Drumline performance was a super opportunity for the girls to learn how African traditions have influenced African American musicians throughout history and how the bands of Historically Black Colleges and Universities have been influenced by that culture. Your commitment to helping expose the youth in our community the Arts is much appreciated and we are so very grateful for your generosity.
