The Mission of the Youth Clubs of Zeta Phi Beta Sorority, Inc. is to provide a carefully designed program of activities that will enhance youth club members through mind, body, and spirit as they work within their various communities to help others.
The Zeta Youth Clubs are auxiliaries of Zeta Phi Beta Sorority, Inc. for young girls and teens between the ages of four (4) and eighteen (18). The Sorority’s objectives for youth groups are to develop leadership skills, foster cultural experiences, social interactions, and educational growth. As a part of Zeta Phi Beta Sorority, Incorporated’s continued efforts to be a positive light for young ladies who are interested and enthusiastic about the ideals of scholarship, sisterly love, community service, elegance, building leadership skills, and developing self-worth, we offer three auxiliary groups. The Pearlettes (ages 4-8), Amicettes (ages 9-13), and Archonettes (ages 14-18) offer a space for girls to begin making an impact on the world at almost any age.
The Pearlettes are young ladies (ages 4-8) who are willing to strive for the high ideals of Zeta Phi Beta Sorority, Incorporated. As a Pearlette, you can expect your child to participate in some of our youth-oriented Z-Hope (Zetas Helping Other People Excel) programs, educational activities, and community service initiatives. Zetas have proven ways to introduce children to service by making holiday cards, packaging food boxes at food pantries, making blankets, collecting canned goods during the holiday seasons, and working with a host of organizations and agencies in order to serve the community and illustrate the fact that service knows no age limit.
The Amicettes are girls (ages 9-13) who are able to demonstrate a potential for leadership and are willing to work as a part of a group. These young ladies strive towards the high ideals of Zeta Phi Beta Sorority, Inc. through academic and personal development, as well as community service. Amicettes will have the opportunity to develop their leadership skills, broaden their horizons, and strengthen their social and cultural awareness through programs.
The Archonette Club is designed to help young ladies (ages 14-18) grow culturally, socially, and educationally. Young ladies in the Archonette Club will have the opportunity to participate in programs and activities that help them learn to make responsible decisions, create happiness for others, develop new interests, and develop self confidence. This program was created to help youth mature their unique personalities, build their leadership skills, and develop relationships with other young ladies. The Archonettes demonstrate an interest in the high ideals of scholarship, sisterly love, and service.
The Amicae are women, who for various reasons, have not joined a Greek-letter organization. These women learn and grow in the spirit of sisterly love and friendship. Zeta Amicae participate in community service within their respective communities and are located and sponsored in areas where there are active chapters of Zeta Phi Beta Sorority, Inc.
