Five Point Programmatic Thrust

New-Jersey-Trenton-New-Jersey-State-Hous

In the long-standing tradition of Delta Sigma Theta Sorority, Inc., TAC continues to advance its efforts to strengthen African-American families and communities through its Five-Point Program Thrust:

Economic Development

Financial planning, money management, consumer education, investments and employment opportunities are but a few of Delta’s “money concerns” under economic development. Our chapter provides homeownership, financial management and consumer education to the community and chapter through our Homeownership Program, Financial Management Program and Financial Fortitude programs.

Educational Development

Each year, local Delta Chapters conduct projects designed to address the community’s concerns about excellence in education. On a local level, TAC’s pursuit of educational excellence takes the form of our 3 youth groups, 1 youth inspired initiative and scholarships.

International
Awareness

Delta has a rich history of involvement in the international arena. The building and maintenance of a maternity wing at the Thika Memorial Hospital in Kenya, West Africa, to Delta’s identification of 1987 at the “Delta International Year” underscores Delta’s commitment to understanding the world. The “African Diaspora,” a Delta Cultural Awareness/Study Program, focused on the dispersion of the peoples and cultures of Africa through the continents of North and South America, Europe, Asia and the island countries in the eastern and western hemispheres.
