Dallas/Fort Worth Youth Symposium
The Dallas/Fort Worth Chapters of Sigma Gamma Rho Sorority, Inc. will host the sorority’s Annual Youth Symposium – “Youth Investment: Building A Future for Impactful Leaders.” The Symposium is just one initiative of the organization’s national signature program, Project Reassurance, which has incorporated the theme of “H3 : It’s All About Me – Healthy Choices, Healthy Living, Healthy Generations.” The goal of the symposium is to engage youth locally and globally by strengthening their minds, bodies, and perspectives.
The symposium will be held on Saturday, March 11, 2017 at the Lakewest YMCA at 10 o’clock in the morning and is a collaborative effort presented by the four alumnae chapters of Sigma Gamma Rho that service the Dallas/Fort Worth Metropolitan area – Alpha Omicron Sigma (Dallas), Alpha Pi Sigma (Fort Worth), Lambda Upsilon Sigma (Plano), and Zeta Delta Sigma (Arlington). The ladies of Sigma Gamma Rho will also be partnering with the Mansfield/Cedar Hill Chapter of Kappa Alpha Psi Fraternity, Inc. to facilitate interactive and informative workshops with topics such as: Distracted Driving Prevention, HIV/AIDs Education, Education and Literacy and Social and Legislative Actions.
The event is free and open to the public but participants must register to attend. Registration can be completed online at https://dfwyouthsymposium.eventbrite.com.
