Welcome to the official website of Alpha Kappa Alpha Sorority, Incorporated, Iota Epsilon Omega Chapter. Chartered in 1971, Iota Epsilon Omega Chapter has been a positive force in Bergen County, New Jersey for fifty years! We have dedicated ourselves to providing service not only to the residents of Bergen County but to all of mankind. You have seen us over the decades as we registered voters, beautified the neighborhoods, educated our youth, sponsored the Arts, and brought a variety of programs and services related to health, economics, and education. We have provided over $350,000 in scholarships to the youth of Bergen County!
Under the direction of our International President, Dr. Glenda Glover, the program thrust for the 2018-2022 administration is Exemplifying Excellence Through Sustainable Service. We will direct our efforts towards the following five targets which are designed to advance the mission of Alpha Kappa Alpha with excellence and underscore our commitment to sustainable service.
Target 1: HBCU for Life: A Call to Action
Iota Epsilon Omega continues its focus on education with an emphasis on supporting and bringing greater awareness to the unique appeal of historically black colleges and universities (HBCUs).
Our Signature Program is #CAP, is the abbreviation for College Admissions Process. It is a hands-on mentoring program targeting all phases of the applying to college. The program focuses on supporting students as they Search, Test, Evaluate, complete Paperwork and above all providing a Positive Outlook throughout the process (S.T.E.P.P.).
Target 2: Women’s Healthcare and Wellness
Iota Epsilon Omega continues to raise community awareness of critical health issues impacting women, particularly women of color. The primary focuses will be breast cancer awareness and prevention, heart health, nutrition and wellness, and care for the caregivers.
Target 3: Building Your Economic Legacy
Iota Epsilon Omega emphasizes financial planning, asset accumulation, and wealth-building including savings and investments, managing debt, and improving credit.
Target 4: The Arts!
Iota Epsilon Omega connects students to arts enrichment and culture by focusing on visual and performing arts and by showcasing talent through the exploration of writers, entertainers, and various other artists who contributed to the Harlem Renaissance and the Black Arts Movements!
Target 5: Global Impact
Iota Epsilon Omega engages in programming designed to enhance the international footprint of the sorority. Service projects include partnerships with Soles4Souls, the Lions Club, RAAP and providing dresses and shirts to help our global friends who need our support.
We focus on several Community Impact Days including Breast Cancer Awareness Day, Pink Goes Red for heart health, MLK Day of Service, and our Caregiver Impact Day when we provide a little relief for those who sacrifice so much for others.
Iota Epsilon Omega Chapter is excited to continue implementing programs and activities under the Exemplifying Excellence Through Sustainable Service administration. We invite you to explore our website and learn more about our organization and chapter, and we hope you will join in our efforts as we continue to be of service to all of mankind.
Yours in Service,
