A Message from Our 19th President...
Greetings and Welcome!
Eta Omega Omega Chapter was chartered by twelve members on May 23, 1964. As the first graduate chapter of Alpha Kappa Alpha Sorority Incorporated established in Bronx County, we pride ourselves on educating, engaging and empowering community residents by providing meaningful service to the Bronx community. We assess the needs of the community, plan purposefully, and collaborate with other civic minded organizations to execute programs that will address the community concerns.
Our members are all college educated, professional women, who range in age from 25 to 102, and who all work assiduously to continue the legacy of service to all mankind. We are a sisterhood established on January 15th, 1908 on Howard University Campus in Washington D.C. We are proud members of the oldest Greek letter organization established by African American women.
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 the name was changed to Wheeler, Wilson and Johnson Community Projects, Incorporated organized exclusively for educational and charitable purposes within the Bronx County.
On May 23rd, 2022, Eta Omega Omega Chapter we celebrated 58 years of service. We proudly operate on a long history of service in every program that we do. We work to educate our community about various health issues, and we work with our youth to help ensure that they have a bright future. Our chapter signature program, Rites of Passage Mentoring, aims to empower high school seniors and assist them with procuring scholarship funds for college. Our other programs focus on the Arts, the Black Family, Education, Economic Security, Health, Global Poverty, Social Justice and Human Rights.
The 2022-2026 theme, Soaring to Greater Heights of Service and Sisterhood seeks to build upon Alpha Kappa Alpha Sorority’s rich legacy of service by galvanizing our sisterhood to lead on the front lines of change, education, and advocacy. This administration has six initiatives. Strengthen Our Sisterhood will serve as the administration’s “Foundation Initiative” as we strengthen our bonds to support our service mission. The remaining five initiatives will serve as the “Program Initiatives” which include:
Empower Our Families
Build Our Economic Wealth
Enhance Our Environment
Advocate for Social Justice
Uplift Our Local Community
These initiatives are designed to improve the lives of those we serve. We will work collaboratively to maximize our outreach on progressive endeavors and consistently produce leaders who will advance our credo of service.
