As the alumni chapter for Oakland, we believe in strengthening our community by building strong leaders and serving humanity. Our chapter does that by organizing projects that fall in line with our fraternity’s three national programs — initiatives developed by the fraternity to uplift the black community.
We also have an active Sigma Beta Club because we believe that Sigma men should play an important role in the lives of our youth.
Bigger and Better Business
Bigger and Better Business became the first national program of Phi Beta Sigma Fraternity. It was first introduced to the fraternity at the 10th anniversary Conclave held in Philadelphia, PA, in December 1924.
Phi Beta Sigma has from its very beginning concerned itself with improving the general well-being of minority groups. In 1934, a well-defined program of Social Action was formulated and put into action.
The founders of Phi Beta Sigma Fraternity, Inc., were all educators in their own right. The genesis of the Education program lies in the traditional emphasis that the fraternity placed on education.
Sigma Beta Club
In 1950, Phi Beta Sigma Fraternity became the first Greek organization to develop a youth auxiliary group. Under the direction of Dr. Parlette L. Moore, the Sigma Beta Club was founded.
