Program Initiatives: Exemplifying Excellence Through Sustainable Service
Exemplifying Excellence Through Sustainable Service
Alpha Kappa Alpha Sorority, Incorporated® is dedicated to implementing programs of service that enhance the social, economic, and educational well-being of the local, national and international communities. Programs remain the heart of AKA. The size and scope of services provided to our communities have grown and significantly improve the quality of life for all who reside within our service areas.
The program theme for 2018-2022 is Exemplifying Excellence Through Sustainable Service. The International Program includes five program targets that are designed to advance the mission of Alpha Kappa Alpha with excellence and underscore our commitment to sustainable service.
Each chapter of Alpha Kappa Alpha Sorority Inc. across the United States and internationally will implement these targets in the communities they serve. Chi Alpha Omega Chapter serves the Northwest Suburbs of Chicago.
The five program targets for 2018-2022 are:
Target I: HBCU for Life: A Call to Action
Target II: Women's Health Care and Wellness
Target III: Building Your Economic Legacy
Target IV: The Arts!
Target IV: Global Impact
The Signature Program is #CAP which is the abbreviation for College Admissions Process. It is designed to assist students in their efforts to enter college by providing a hands-on approach that includes all the steps from researching various colleges to actually completing the application process.
In addition to the program targets, the Exemplifying Excellence Through Sustainable Service administration is pleased to continue Community Impact Days. Chapters will engage in simultaneous activities that will benefit the community and continue our commitment to lifelong service.
A significant feature of this programmatic thrust is the launch of AKA University! This exciting new platform will serve as the umbrella under which education, training, and leadership development will emerge so that members can enhance their personal development and provide more impactful service to the community.
