Delta Sigma Theta Sorority, Inc., a national service sorority, requires that its members exemplify and encourage high cultural, intellectual, and moral standards and that their actions exemplify the public and personal behaviors that reflect the ideals and principles espoused by the Sisterhood. With “joy in our sisterhood, power in our voice and service in our heart”, we implement programs embracing five areas: Economic Development, Educational Development, International Awareness and Involvement, Physical and Mental Health, and Political Awareness and Involvement.  From the core of these five areas, we implement programs for youth that increase scholarships, scholastic achievement, leadership skills, and promote high self-esteem.  We feed the homeless, support educational awareness at home and abroad, support scientific studies, voter registration and voter education.
