XI GAMMA OMEGA PROGRAMS

The 2018-2022 International Program theme for Alpha Kappa Alpha Sorority, Inc, is Exemplifying Excellence Through Sustainable Service. Xi Gamma Omega Chapter will execute the following programs:
Target 1: HBCU 4 Life: A Call to Action

  • XGO will promote and market historically black colleges and universities and encourage students to attend HBCUs as a sustainability measure. 

  • Signature Program: #CAP

    • Alpha Kappa Alpha will assist students as they seek admission to college by providing guidance and support in completing the application and enrollment process through the 2018-2022 Signature Program, #CAP.

    • Too many African-American high school students lack the basic support needed to navigate through the college admissions process. Through #CAP, XGO will partner with local high schools and youth groups to bridge the gap between high school and college by demystifying the college application and enrollment process. This educational initiative will extend to all colleges and universities, both HBCUs and non-HBCUs.

    • #CAP is a step-by-step approach to facilitate college admission from researching various institutions and submitting applications through completion of the enrollment process. We will assist students in completing college applications, preparing for the ACT and SAT, writing compelling personal statements, identifying scholarships and other financial aid, and compiling a portfolio to track college admission results. 

Target 2: Women's Healthcare and Wellness

  • Breast Cancer Awareness and Prevention will focus specifically on early detection through mammograms to improve the survival rate of women diagnosed with breast cancer. 

  • Heart Health remains a focus as the sorority enhances its commitment to healthy hearts through fitness activities and walking. 

  • Nutrition and Wellness will emphasize healthy lifestyles including prenatal, childhood, adult, and senior nutrition programs. 

  • Care for the Caregivers places emphasis on taking care of those who take care of others. 

Target 3: Building Your Economic Legacy

  • Personal Financial Planning and Asset Accumulation. Financial 
    Freedom Legacy Workshops will be conducted in partnership with local certified financial planners who will share information on saving, investing, and retirement planning. 

  • Credit Repair and Monitoring. This initiative will focus on ways to repair credit and improve credit scores including how to check for inaccurate or outdated information in credit reports, and how to protect against both identity theft and unauthorized credit history use.

  • Entrepreneurship and the Black Dollar 365. This initiative will highlight and promote successful African-American owned businesses with an aim toward spawning new entrepreneurial ventures in our communities by encouraging intentional support and leveraging the power of the black dollar 365 days a year.

  • Operation AKA Assist. This initiative will focus on implementing programs to assist those in need in various communities by directing attention to the plight of the homeless, including homeless children, and homeless veterans.

Target 4: The Arts!

  • Salute to the Harlem Renaissance will celebrate the contributions of African-American artists during the Harlem Renaissance through student research and chapter sponsorship of student talent showcases. 

  • Salute to the Black Arts Movement will focus on student research and celebration of African-American artists during the Black Arts Movement. 

Target 5: Global Impact

  • National Global Impact Day. XGO will engage in a community service project that has an international impact and will partner with organizations that make a difference worldwide.

  • Global Assistance Activities. XGO will engage in global partnerships that provide assistance to the underserved in international areas populated with people of color. These partnerships include the following:

    • Soles 4 Souls. We will collect gently-worn shoes and transport the shoes to specified locations. Soles 4 Souls, a non-profit organization, will process and ship shoes to destinations around the world populated with people of color.

    • Lions Club International. We will participate in an eyeglass initiative designed to prevent blindness, help restore eyesight, and improve eye health and eye care for millions of people around the world by donating used eyeglasses in partnership with local Lions Clubs.

    • Pillowcase Project. We will continue to use pillowcases to make dresses for little girls and will expand the sorority’s efforts to include shirts for little boys. The pillowcase dresses and shirts will be sent to Haiti to provide clothing for children in need.

  • Refugees in America Assistance Program (RAAP). We will focus on refugees of color in the United States by partnering with organizations engaged in support activities that assist refugees and their families to integrate into American life.
