Sigma Beta Club

In the early 1950s, Phi Beta Sigma Fraternity became the first Greek organization to develop a youth auxiliary group. Under the direction of Dr. Parlett L. Moore (pictured) the Sigma Beta Club was founded. While as National Director of Education, Brother Moore was concerned about our changing needs in our communities and recognized the important role that Sigma men could play in the lives of our youth.

On April 23, 1954, the first club chapter was organized in Montgomery, AL. Throughout its existence, Sigma Beta Club has been an essential part of the total organizational structure of many of the Alumni chapters of Phi Beta Sigma Fraternity, Inc. and offers men of Sigma a unique opportunity to develop wholesome value, leadership skills, and social and cultural awareness of youth at a most critical stage in the youth’s personal development.

The Sigma Beta Clubs’ principles of focus emphasize Culture, Athletics, Social and Educational needs. Sigma Beta Club programs are geared to meet the needs of its members, but at the same time provide them with a well-rounded outlook that is needed to cope with today’s society. Phi Beta Sigma is confident that investing in our youth today will produce effective leaders of tomorrow.

Sigma Beta Clubs also provide services to youths in their communities. Phi Beta Sigma Fraternity, Inc.’s interest in fostering the development of youth into effective leaders has been realized in the establishment of strong and productive Sigma Beta Club all across the country.

There are many benefits associated with membership in the Sigma Beta Club. The Club serves to augment the positive examples of rearing they receive at home and provides a “positive” shield against negative influences once the child is outside the reach of their parents.  By providing positive examples that reinforce home teaching, members of the Club are less susceptible to negative peer pressure, which can lead to serious academic and life consequences.

Sigma Beta Club programs are geared to meet the needs of its members, while at the same time provide them with a well-rounded outlook that is needed to cope with today’s society. The enrichment programs are cultural, social, and athletic. They are designed to give members a chance to be innovative, thereby instilling self-confidence and a feeling of accomplishment.
