Clinton (MS) Alumnae Chapter

CHAPTER PROGRAMS

 
Clinton (MS) Alumnae Chapter is committed to providing leadership and extensive public service through its Five-Point Programmatic Thrust of Economic Development, Educational Development, International Awareness and Involvement, Physical and Mental Health, and Political Awareness and Involvement

Economic Development

The chapter engages in various activities by implementing projects and programs aimed at promoting economic development and wealth building in the community and to its membership.  As African-Americans continue to strive towards economic independence, throughout the year the chapter hosts mini-workshops on financial planning, money management, consumer education, investments and entrepreneurship.  The chapter hosts a Financial Fortitude seminars annually.
 
Educational Development

Since the founding of the sorority in 1913, education has always been one of the dominating pillars of the sorority's mission.  The chapter continues to actively design programs and create meaningful educational opportunities for the communities we serve.  Currently, the Chapter supports youth through mentorship from ages 11-14 through two distinctive Delta Academies, named after a distinguished member Dr. Betty Shabazz.  Delta Academy I and II are collaborative efforts between the Clinton (MS) Alumnae Chapter of Delta Sigma Theta Sorority, Inc. and Bolton-Edwards Elementary/Middle School.  Delta GEMS is an expansion of the Delta Academy and supports young ladies between the ages of 14-18 at Clinton High School.  EMBODI is one of our newest initiatives supporting African-American males in our service area.

May Week is our annual program which honors the top ten African-American students from Clinton High School, Hinds County Agricultural High School, Raymond High School, and Terry High School for their academic achievements.  Scholarships are provided to honorees. 
International Awareness and Involvement

In efforts to broaden the understanding of nations around the world and global affairs, the Chapter is committed to exploring cultural diversity so that we work towards finding solutions to world problems and align with other organizations in promoting peace and inclusiveness within our own communities. 
 
Physical and Mental Health

Through health education and programs designed at eliminating health disparities within our communities, our chapter has given significant attention to "wellness" initiatives and health promotions.  An annual health fair is one of the many public service projects dedicated in educating community members with the provision of free health screenings for those illnesses plaguing our state's African-American population.  Other activities include the Total Woman Fitness Project and the American Cancer Society Relay for Life.
 
 
Political Awareness and Involvement

Increasing awareness on public policy and improving political involvement is carried out by the chapter through programs which empower social change and civic engagement.  The chapter not only aligns with the National Social  Action agenda of the Grand Chapter but is very involved in public issues affecting the state of Mississippi.  Delta Day at the Mississippi State Capitol is an annual event in which members of the chapter spend a day with regional and statewide members of the sorority, including state legislators, while focusing on policy issues.  The sorority is active in voter registration and "Get Out to Vote" campaigns.
