Alpha Kappa Alpha Sorority, Incorporated, is an international service organization that was founded at Howard University in Washington, D.C. in 1908. It is the oldest Greek-lettered organization established by African-American college-educated women and is comprised of 260,000 members in graduate and undergraduate chapters in the United States, the U. S. Virgin Islands, the Caribbean, Canada, Japan, Germany, Korea and on the continent of Africa.
The Delta Kappa Omega Chapter of Alpha Kappa Alpha Sorority, Incorporated was chartered in 1947. For more than 65 years, we have given back to the community by providing programs that focus on the black family, economic empowerment, environmental stewardship, education, and health. We are also proud to provide scholarship opportunities through our fundraising activities.
One of our award-winning projects is the Reading & Mathematics Tutorial. We have served hundreds of students in our weekly program held at the B.L. Perry Library. Delta Kappa Omega also provides leadership training to area youth, through the Emerging Young Leaders (EYL) program for middle school girls and the Pearls of Perfection program for high school girls.
Delta Kappa Omega also has a 501(c)3 foundation, which spearheaded the opening of the Delta Kappa Omega Providence Community Service Center in 2012. The center, located at 1908 Highlands Boulevard, has had a great impact in the Providence community. We have collaborated with the Tallahassee Police Department, the Providence Neighborhood Association, and other organizations, to provide after-school programming, summer enrichment programs, clothing and food drives, and assistance to veterans.
Delta Kappa Omega is committed to our national program focus of New Dimensions of Service. We offer a wide-array of programs related to our program initiatives in the following areas: Educational Enrichment; Health Promotion; Family Strengthening; Environmental Ownership; and Global Impact Alpha Kappa Alpha Sorority will expand its community presence as a result of these initiatives, which include International Community Impact Days and our signature enrichment program, ASCEND
(for a full description of initiatives, see Program link).
