Greetings and welcome to the official website of the Flint Alumnae Chapter of Delta Sigma Theta Sorority, Inc. Our chapter has a proud and rich history of serving the Flint community since its chartering on May 16, 1954. We are honored to have you explore our website to learn more about our distinguished chapter and the many programs we have that provide public service to the community.
Delta Sigma Theta Sorority, Incorporated, the largest African-American Greek-lettered sorority in the world, was founded by 22 college women on January 13, 1913 on the campus of Howard University. Today, the sorority has a membership of over 200,000 women in the United States and abroad, dedicated to public service.
Our programs are aligned with the national organization’s Five Point Program Thrust, which are: Economic Development, Educational Development, International Awareness and Involvement, Physical and Mental Health, and Political Awareness and Involvement.
We routinely assess our programs to ensure that they are meeting our objectives as well as the needs of the community. A continuous emphasis has been on youth development and empowerment with two specific programs:
Delta GEMS (Growing and Empowering Myself Successfully) – A mentoring program for girls 14-18 years of age promoting leadership and academic excellence.
The Dr. Betty Shabazz Delta Academy – A program for girls between the ages of 11-14, with a focus on science, math, and nontraditional careers.
Flint Alumnae Chapter also awards yearly scholarships and book grants to young people pursuing a higher education, through the Rebecca Louise Robinson Scholarship Fund. Political awareness and involvement, as manifested in relevant social action issues at the local, state and national level, are addressed by chapter initiatives and during Delta Days at State Capitol and Delta Days in the Nation’s Capital.
Our chapter of over 100 members is committed to positively impacting Flint and Genesee County and is excited about the opportunities for continued service to our community. We encourage you to visit the website frequently for specific information about our events, programs and announcements.
If you are a member in search of a chapter in our area, please e-mail us for specific meeting information. We would love to have you join us in service and sisterhood.
On behalf of the members of Flint Alumnae, I thank you for your interest and continued support.
Yours in Service,
President, Flint Alumnae Chapter
