Gamma Upsilon Omega has a strong history of supporting and servicing families, for we understand a healthy family is the foundation of a healthy community. We will continue to support the families within our communities by addressing child hunger and promoting positive youth development and leadership, mental well-being, and senior life.
Areas of focus
Childhood Hunger Initiative Power Pack (CHIPP™)
CHIPP provides weekend and holiday meals for children within local communities and is targeted to be Alpha Kappa Alpha’s most ambitious childhood hunger program to date.
Youth Leadership Institute (YLI)
YLI is a youth-led and highly interactive leadership development program designed to empower and engage youth, ages 11-13.
Mental Health Awareness
During Mental Health Awareness month, we will use our collective efforts to fight stigma and raise awareness related to depression, anxiety, and trauma.
GUO work continue to bring awareness to the community by volunteering at the local Making Strides Against Breast Cancer 5K Walk. A team also walked and raised funds in support of cancer research.
