Gamma Omega Chapter’s Youth Group of San Bernardino, California attended the Grand Celebration of Eta Phi Beta Sorority, Inc. 76th Founder’s Day. The celebration was held on Saturday, October 13, 2018 at the Doubletree by Hilton Ontario, Airport. All of the chapters in the Western Region participated in the celebration. It was a grand affair that they will always remember.
There was a wealth of knowledge shared about the visions and dreams of the Sorority’s Founders at the luncheon, which included improving the conditions in the community by offering Career Awareness Programs, and scholarships to assist high school students with expanding their education and career options.
Outreach programs were implemented to provide assistance to families during the Thanksgiving and Christmas Holiday seasons. A walk-a-thon is held biennially to raise funds for community-based organizations advocating for and serving people and their families with intellectual and developmental disabilities. This is just a few of the many programs and projects that Eta Phi Beta Sorority offers as a result of the Founder’s vision.
The culmination of the celebration was when three of Gamma Omega Chapter’s Bee-Ettes, MaRyah Clarks, Kayla Johnson, and Jadae Jackson had an opportunity to share their experiences as a sorority member.
Their experiences included attending youth conferences and workshops, both in state and out of state, for self improvement, increasing their learning life skills, and social etiquette. These programs are offered to youth all over the United States including the Virgin Island.
When we nourish our youth through meaningful and viable programs, we are nurturing our future leaders.
