Gamma Alpha Omega’s commitment to mentoring youth began in 2011 with the founding of the Gamma Alpha Omega's Emeralds for Education, which brought youth mentoring to our local communities through various organizations. We have worked to promote youth mentorship ever since. Gamma Alpha Omega knows the power of women to effect positive change, and has proven it from our volunteer work to foster educational and mentoring programs and support Emeralds for Education. Our chapters support local and national organizations, volunteering many hours and generously fundraising for this cause.
One of many purposes of our sorority is to support women, particularly women of color. Often times issues that affect these women are often ignored or set aside. Our chapters support HIV & AIDS Awareness as another philanthropy by educating communities about the difference between HIV & AIDS, how and where to get tested to know your status, and helping to stop the stigma of HIV & AIDS. Programs and initiatives include: World AIDS Day, AIDS Walks, Red Ribbon Fundraisers, HIV/AIDS Awareness Days
