We hope you will explore our page to learn more about our chapter and our mission to serve Prince George's County, MD and be of service to all mankind. Mission The Iota Gamma Omega Chapter (IGO) chartered in 1970 in Prince George's County, Maryland is committed to carrying out an action plan that addresses the at-risk status of children, parents, families, neighbors, and friends by developing and implementing service projects in five target areas: Education, Health, The Black Family, Economics, and the Arts. Company Overview Alpha Kappa Alpha Sorority, Incorporated, the first Greek letter organization founded by and for Black college women, was established on January 15, 1908. Alpha Kappa Alpha was initiated by Ethel Hedgeman Lyle and fifteen other ambitious and dedicated women at Howard University. The founders of the Alpha Kappa Alpha Sorority were conscious of the privilege and responsibility as college trained members of minority group, just one generation removed from slavery. These young women were determined that their college experience would be meaningful and valuable, in order to enhance their self-realization. The sorority was founded to foster high scholastic and ethical standards, promote unity and sisterhood, and improve the social stature of African-Americans.
