About the Sigma Beta Club
In the early 1950s, Phi Beta Sigma Fraternity became the first Greek organization to establish a youth auxiliary group. Under the direction of Bro. Dr. Parlett L. Moore, while serving as National Education Director, the Sigma Beta Club was founded. Brother Moore was concerned with changing needs in our communities and recognized the important role that Sigma men could play in the lives of our youth.
Club members receive academic assistance and leadership development at the elementary, middle and high school levels. This happens through one-on-one and group approaches to tutoring of Sigma Beta Club members and after school and weekend tutoring by Alumni and Collegiate members in various academic and professional disciplines.
Club members increase their awareness of business ownership as well as the importance of saving and investing at an early age. Club members also learn about various professions via internships, job shadowing, and other avenues to visit job sites.
Sigma Beta Club members are required to conduct a variety of community service projects. These may include but are not limited to serving the elderly, March of Dimes: March for Babies, Sickle Cell Centers, visiting children in hospitals, volunteering at their library, working with children with disabilities, cleaning up their neighborhood, etc.
