A Message from Our 20th President...
Greetings and Welcome!
Chartered on May 23, 1964, Eta Omega Omega Chapter is the first graduate chapter of Alpha Kappa Alpha Sorority, Incorporated established in Bronx County. We pride ourselves on engaging with and empowering community residents by providing meaningful service to the Bronx community and collaborating with other civic-minded organizations to execute programs that will address the community concerns.
Undergirding our mission of service is a legacy of sisterhood that was established on January 15, 1908, on the campus of Howard University in Washington D.C. Alpha Kappa Alpha Sorority, Incorporated stands proudly as the first Greek-lettered organization established by African American women.
On May 23rd, 2022, Eta Omega Omega Chapter celebrated 58 years of service to the Bronx through health, economic empowerment, and college fairs; our signature Rites of Passage Program for Teenage Girls; mentoring; youth development programs; financial literacy workshops; support for college-going youth; voter registration; social justice and human rights programming; environmental stewardship at our AKARosa site; and collaboration with a variety of like-minded civic organizations. The chapter is a recipient of many regional and local awards and recognitions.
On June 25, 1983, Eta Omega Omega chartered the only undergraduate chapter on a City University of New York campus. Xi Xi (Lehman College) Chapter of Alpha Kappa Alpha Sorority, Incorporated. In 1999, our foundation was created, in 2009 in honor of three of our outstanding charter members, our foundation was renamed as Wheeler, Wilson and Johnson Community Projects, Incorporated. WWJ as it is known serves as the fundraising arm of our chapter.
