Welcome to the website of the Denver Alumnae Chapter of Delta Sigma Theta Sorority, Incorporated. We are a chapter of approximately 200 members who are committed to providing relevant and exemplary public service. Chartered as the Beta Phi Chapter on February 28, 1939, by Mae Adams, Elaine Brown Jenkins and Jessie Whaley Maxwell, the Denver Alumnae Chapter has served the Denver Metro Area for nearly 75 years.
In keeping with our National theme “A Sisterhood Called to Serve: Transforming Lives, Impacting Communities,” we continue to implement programs that sustain the legacy of our 22 Founders and focus on our sorority’s Five-Point Programmatic Thrust: Economic Development, Educational Development, International Awareness and Involvement, Physical and Mental Health and Political Awareness and Involvement.
Each year our chapter awards scholarships, participates in voter drives and health walks, hosts the Sister-to-Sister Breast Cancer Support Group and conducts programs to assist in the positive growth of our youth such as the Dr. Betty Shabazz Delta Academy (for middle school girls), the Dr. Jeanne L. Noble Delta GEMS (for high school girls) and E.M.B.O.D.I. (Empowering Males to Build Opportunities for Developing Independence). This year marked the 8th edition of both our annual ACT Prep workshop, a comprehensive test preparation program provided at no cost for area high school students, and our annual Step It Up In the Mile High City Step Show, featuring our very own 50-plus Denver Delta Divas and Mile High Steppers.
We are excited to announce that on January 13, 2013, our sisterhood will celebrate 100 years as an organization. As we commemorate this milestone, join us February 2, 2013, for a wonderful daytime Birthday Celebration and an unforgettable evening at our Centennial Gala.
Thank you for taking time to visit our website and learn more about our chapter. We invite your involvement in our numerous programs as we strive to help our community.
Yours In Service,
