A Latina-founded, multicultural organization that exists to increase the number of women with college educations and advanced degrees. We provide mentors for youth, women and underrepresented communities, as well as support individual leaders in each member. Gamma Alpha Omega provides lifelong support for sisters, rooted in the pillars of Honesty, Integrity, Leadership, Scholarship, and Unity.
Education with a focus on mentoring youth
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.
HIV & AIDS Awareness
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.
