EMBODI

Nassau Alumnae Chapter is committed to enriching the lives of those in Nassau County (NY).  We will provide the residents of Nassau County with programs and services tailored to their needs.  In realizing the mission of Delta Sigma Theta Sorority, Inc., Nassau Alumnae Chapter provides many public service initiatives through the sorority's Five-Point Programmatic Thrust designed to move our community forward.

Empowering Males to Build Opportunities  for Developing Independence. (EMBODI) is designed for males ages 11-18 years old. EMBODI is the signature program of Delta Sigma Theta Sorority, Inc.'s 24th National President , Cynthia M.A. Butler-McIntyre to address the plight of African American males.  Both informal and empirical data suggests that African American males continue to be in crisis. 

 

Nassau Alumnae's  EMBODI program focuses on these issues through dialogue, mentoring, programs and activities while addressing the specific needs of African American males in the areas of character development, education, community service, self-effacy, leadership, financial literacy, conflict resolution, scholarship, physical & mental health and community service
