The Alpha Kappa Sigma (Austin) and Mu Beta Sigma (Round Rock) Alumnae Chapters of Sigma Gamma Rho Sorority are proud to jointly host the 2023 Annual Youth Symposium. This year's general theme is Supporting, Serving, and Empowering Youth Educationally, Civically, Socially, Physically, and Emotionally!
The one-day Youth Symposium was one initiative of Sigma Gamma Rho Sorority, Inc.’s national signature program, PROJECT REASSURANCE, which incorporated the “H3: It’s All About ME! – Healthy Choices, Healthy Living, Healthy Generations.” theme. The late Dr. LaRona J. Morris, Past Grand Basileus, originated this nationwide symposium under her administration during the period of 1996 – 2000. Today, the Annual Youth Symposium is one of the sorority’s five National Essential Programs. We are honored to continue Past Grand Basileus Morris’s thrust to empower youth in our communities through hands-on, interactive activities.
The Sigma Youth Symposium is designed to address issues and opportunities related to STEAM, Health/Wellness (Mental and Physical), Social Action/Justice, Education and Career Planning, Financial Literacy; and Culture (Social Media, etc.). Nationwide, Alumnae Chapters (supported by undergraduate chapters and affiliates) present a unified effort to support our youth in person and/or virtually through impactful, educational, inspiring, and engaging programming for youth.
