The women of Sigma Gamma Rho are teaming up across the country to create a safe spaces to empower youth to advocate for themselves and their peers.
On March 9, 2019, Sigma Gamma Rho Sorority, Inc., alumnae chapters across the nation will unite to simultaneously host the annual Youth Symposium as part of their Project Reassurance.
Started by their late Past Grand Basileus, Dr. LaRona J. Morris in 1996, the national program serves to help empower youth. The Symposium is one initiative of our signature national program, Project Reassurance which focuses on the theme of “H3: It’s All About Me – Healthy Choices, Healthy Living, Healthy Generations.”
This year’s theme is “Mission Possible: A Safe Space for Our Youth” the sorority wrote on their Facebook page.
“The goal of the symposium is to create dialogue, have opportunities for youth to connect to community resources, and to provide inspiration for making positive and long-lasting change. Programming will focus on equipping and empowering youth with the skills and competencies to advocate for themselves and their peers. It will also help parents and guardians to better understand our youth so that they may better support them as they navigate through life.”
