It is my esteemed pleasure to welcome you 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 advancing the vision set forth by our 22 Founders, 100 years ago.
These young women wanted to use their collective strengths to promote Sisterhood, Scholarship, and Service. We are honored that one of our Founders, Bertha Pitts Campbell, was raised in Colorado and we remain steadfast in upholding the ideals of our illustrious sisterhood by providing relevant and exemplary public service in the Denver Metro Area.
Chartered on February 28, 1939, by Mae Adams, Elaine Brown Jenkins, and Jessie Whaley Maxwell, the Beta Phi Chapter (now the Denver Alumnae Chapter) will celebrate 75 years of service in 2014.
Our community activities and programs are centered around our sorority’s Five-Point Programmatic Thrust:
Physical and Mental Health
Political Awareness and Involvement
International Awareness and Involvement
Each year our chapter awards scholarships, participates in voter drives and health walks, 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), E.M.B.O.D.I. (Empowering Males to Build Opportunities for Developing Independence), host an annual ACT Prep workshop, and a Sister-to-Sister Breast Cancer support group. We also host the Annual Step It Up In the Mile High City Step Show featuring our very own +50 plus Denver Delta Divas and sensational Mile High Steppers.
We are proud to be a part of Delta Sigma Theta’s Charismatic and Courageous Central Region and are excited to announce that we will be hosting the 47th Central Regional Conference of Delta Sigma Theta Sorority, Inc. June 4-8, 2014.
Thank you for taking time to visit our website. We hope you learned more about our chapter and invite your involvement in our numerous programs as we strive to help our community.
Yours in Service,
