About Our Programs
Founded in 1913, Delta Sigma Theta Sorority, Inc., is a non-profit organization whose purpose is to provide services and programs to promote human welfare. The Evansville Alumnae Chapter works to impact the Evansville community through the sorority’s Five-Point Programmatic Thrust: Economic Development, Educational Development, International Awareness and Involvement, Physical and Mental Health, and Political Awareness and Involvement.
The Evansville Alumnae Chapter is dedicated to the development of young people in our local community through the GEMS program and other youth events. We are proud to sponsor the Dr. Jeanne L. Noble Delta GEMS Program for females ages 14-18 and our Youth Summit and a Debutante ball (held on alternating years), both of which are open to all though 13-18. We are always striving to make a difference, and invite you to learn more and lend your support.
Health & Wellness Task Force
Physical and Mental Health
The work of Evansville Alumnae Chapter in physical and mental health is led by our Health & Wellness Task Force, who coordinates health education programs, health fairs, mental health education and the promotion of physical activity and a healthy lifestyle. The Task Force also works with local and national organizations to educate the community on the prevention of illnesses that specifically impact segments of the nation’s population, particularly African Americans.
Political Awareness & Involvement
Marching for Women's Suffrage was our organization’s first public act, and since then, social action has remained a priority. Through involvement in the political process, encouraging our communities to make their voices heard through civic engagement, and helping to make others aware of the policies and laws that impact them, Evansville Alumnae Chapter has continued to positively impact the Evansville community.
