The EMBODI (Empowering Males to Build Opportunities for Developing Independence) program is designed to refocus the efforts of Delta Sigma Theta Sorority, Inc., on the plight of African-American males. Both informal and empirical data suggests that the vast majority of African-American males continues to be in crisis and is not reaching its fullest potential educationally, socially and emotionally. EMBODI is designed to address these issues through dialogue, and recommendations for change and action.

The SHFBAC program is unique in that it uses a peer mentoring model to help challenge young men to make better life decisions.



The Scholarship and Awards Committee of the SHFBA Chapter is charged with the responsibility of promoting higher education through scholarships and providing high school students with enrichment skills that will assist them in achieving their goals.

For over 25 years, our Chapter, in collaboration with DAAP (The Delta Academic, Artistic & Philanthropic Foundation), has provided more than $300,000 in scholarships to deserving students.  Our scholarship recipients have attended schools as far away as Howard University and as close to home as Texas Southern University.
