Impact Your World
17th Annual Youth Symposium
The countrywide symposiums will feature workshops emphasizing healthy living and healthy choices, which will lead to healthy generations. This year’s symposiums involve national and local partners emphasizing the strength of the village.
This year will be to bring together a “village of support” for young people. “Sigma Gamma Rho Sorority knows that the youth are our future; we must prepare them so that they can lead the way,” said Bonita M. Herring, 23rd International President of Sigma Gamma Rho Sorority.
March 8th the sorority will focus on the importance of partnerships in the community that support our youth. Male and female youth are invited, but some topics will specifically focus on young girls, ages 13 – 18 which include our teen affiliate group the Rhoer Club.
