NATIONAL PROGRAMS AND PARTNERSHIPS

From the Sorority’s inception, Zeta Phi Beta Sorority, Inc. has long demonstrated an interest in serving the needs of the community.  We pride ourselves in partnering with organizations and companies that are in alignment with our founding precepts of Scholarship, Service, Sisterhood and Finer Womanhood.  Our list of strategic partners and signature programs span a cross section of socio-economic, ethnic, and professional lines.

Z-H.O.P.E.

Z – H.O.P.E. (Zetas Helping Other People Excel) is an outreach service program that has six primary objectives, corresponding measures of success and a mechanism for chapter recognition.

The primary objectives are:

  • To provide culturally appropriate informational activities according to the Z-HOPE program format

  • To promote the opportunities for expansion in Stork’s Nest programs

  • To facilitate community service and mentorship opportunities for members of the organization

  • To provide an equitable chapter recognition program for community services rendered

  • To provide a standard reporting format to concentrate efforts and demonstrate the organization’s impact

Zeta National Education Foundation

The National Educational Foundation of Zeta Phi Beta Sorority, Inc with 501 (c) 3 status is created and operated exclusively for charitable and educational purposes. The principle activities and purpose of the trust are to award scholarship grants to worthy students for the pursuit of higher education; to conduct community educational programs which will aid in the educational and vocational improvement in individual and community living standards; to engage in activities which will aid in the educational development of all women; and to engage in any appropriate research related to the purposes of the Foundation scholarship.

Elder Care
Elder Care Initiative  strives to provide education and awareness about preparing for your senior years. The African American community is least prepared when it comes to retirement, estate planning and understanding the legal and financial preparation needed to care for parents, grandparents and ultimately, for our own long term care. It is a comprehensive program that also focuses on elder abuse awareness, financial peace, supporting the caregiver and volunteering at senior care facilities. 

Adopt-a-School
Adopt-A-School allows members of Zeta Phi Beta to identify low performing schools and provide assistance in a number of ways to enhance the educational experience, increase test scores and grades. Members purchase supplies and/or equipment, provide volunteer hours, assist with parent engagement programs and work with administrators to identify needs that may be specific to that particular school. The adopted school for the Alpha Eta Zeta chapter is Dunbar Elementary School. 

Adopt-a-Highway
Adopt-A-Highway is a Tennessee Department of Transportation (TDOT) program provides an opportunity for individuals and groups concerned about the environment to take an active role in preserving and protecting our state's natural beauty. AHZ joined the efforts of keeping Memphis' highways cleaned in 2010. Our assigned area is located at Highway 51 and Watkins.
