Greetings Sorors and Friends,
On behalf of the dynamic ladies of the Greater Salt Lake Alumnae Chapter of Delta Sigma Theta Sorority, Inc, it is my pleasure to welcome you to our website.
Delta Sigma Theta Sorority, Inc, was founded on the campus of Howard University on January 13, 1913 by 22 women. These amazing trailblazers were on a mission to promote academic excellence and to provide for those in need. Delta Sigma Theta Sorority, Incorporated is an organization of college educated women committed to the constructive development of its members and to public service with a primary focus on the Black community.
In our 31 years in Ogden and Salt Lake communities, the Greater Salt Lake Alumnae Chapter aligns its work in these communities around the sorority's Five-Point Programmatic Thrust: Economic Development, Educational Development, International Awareness and Involvement, Physical and Mental Health and Political Awareness and Involvement. We have strong partnerships with community agencies such as the Discovery Gate Way, Northern Utah HIV/AIDS Coalition and Project Success Coalition. Our signature programs are the Dr. Betty Shabazz Delta Academy and Delta GEMS. These programs center our around the mentoring of the young girls, ages 11-18, in our community, offering activities around self-esteem, STEM and achieving academic excellence.
I welcome you to visit our website often and join us in our work in the community.
Bridgette F. Baker
