Zeta Youth Affiliates
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.
BRIEF HISTORY OF ZETA PHI BETA SORORITY, INC. YOUTH AFFILIATES
The first clubs were formed in the 1950’s for all youth involved with the sorority, as Zetalites, Archonettes, or Amicettes. However participation in club activities quickly increased to the point that the club was divided into two age groups. The high school girls kept the name of the Archonette club, which accepts members who are in high school grades of nine through twelve (9-12). The younger girls became the Amicette Club (ages 9-13), and in the 1990’s the Pearlette Club (ages 4-8) was organized.
Various chapters of Zeta Phi Beta Sorority, Inc. sponsor these youth affiliates. With continued program development and the establishment of guidelines, these clubs have become viable links of the sorority.
