Our Charter Members were committed to continuing the work in public service that began in 1913 by our Founders on the Howard University Campus. As a result, the Rochester Alumnae Chapter is made up of sisters from various parts of the world. There are many sisters who reside in the community that periodically support our chapter activities and programs as well. Over the years, the Rochester Alumnae Chapter has grown from its initial membership of fifteen to over seventy-five members.
Over the decades, the Rochester Alumnae Chapter has been involved in programs which focus on our sorority’s Five Point Programmatic Thrusts (i.e. Economic Development, Educational Development, International Awareness, Physical and Mental Health, and Political Awareness). This chapter has continually placed a special emphasis on education. We recognize the role education plays in uplifting our people from poverty. We recognize that our youth are the key to a strong community and a brighter future.
We have continually been committed to motivating our youth with incentives and equipping them with tools to function in a global society which is heavily dependent upon technology. The chapter also involved itself in community service projects and partnering with local community groups such as Action for a Better Community, Urban League, and NAACP to bring about social change. The newly chartered chapter had activities to bring awareness to the community about the impact of Delta.
At the turn of the century, our zeal remains focused on public service and the betterment of our people. The initial ideas of Delta live on in our current members. The Chapter’s programming continues to emphasize education and development of youth. In our Delta Academy and Delta G.E.M.S. programs, we focus on educating our young girls and teens about the community needs and resources that are available to us as public servants. We also focus on the importance of good citizenship and scholarship.
