The Youth Symposium is a national initiative of Sigma Gamma Rho Sorority Inc. and is structured for 6th-12th grade students with the purpose of education and empowerment. It is a forum that encourages a discussion and tries to provide a solution to some of the prevalent concerns that impact our youth.
We combine efforts with many other community based organizations to provide workshops aimed to educate teens on many issues they encounter-- drug and alcohol use, teen violence, intimate partner abuse, low self-esteem, suicide, teen pregnancy, etc. Our ultimate goal is that these workshops become avenues to discuss their concerns and to get valuable information and insight that they will apply to their lives.
We strongly believe that if we teach our youth now to make healthy choices, they will, in turn, live healthier lives and create healthier generations in the future.
