Rapper and proud SGRho, MC Lyte, is the International Ambassador for Sigma Gamma Rho’s Project Reassurance program.
In the following video, the famed SGRho sister explains the meaning of the project and what it means to both her sorority and the community as a whole.
According to Sigma Gamma Rho’s website, “Project Reassurance is the signature community service program of Sigma Gamma Rho Sorority, Inc. Through Project Reassurance, Sigma Gamma Rho seeks to promote responsible living for teens in today’s world by focusing on prevention of teen pregnancy, personal decision-making, character building, promoting moral values and making good health education choices.”
“Sigma Gamma Rho has a long and sustainable history in the business of teen pregnancy prevention,” the project’s webpage states. “In 1972, a pilot program with two chapters (Zeta Sigma and Alpha Delta chapters) initiated Project Reassurance with family life and leadership development workshops for coeds at the School of Continuing Education, St. Louis, Missouri. This pilot project effort s became a National Project in 1974 with Rejesta V. Perry, PhD, as the national director of Project Reassurance. Project Reassurance was first established in 1974 in conjunction with the National March of Dimes Birth Defects Foundation. In August 2001, the Board of Directors of Sigma Gamma Rho Sorority, Inc. voted Project Reassurance as the Sorority’s National premiere program.”
