The Alaska Alumnae Chapter
of Delta Sigma Theta Sorority, Incorporated
My name is Lori Colbert and I am a proud member of the Alaska Alumnae chapter based in Anchorage, Alaska. The Alaska Alumnae Chapter is one of over 900 chapters of Delta Sigma Theta Sorority, Inc. a sisterhood of college educated women dedicated to public service. In our effort to perform public service acts in the Anchorage, Alaska community, the women of the Alaska Alumnae chapter work in primarily five fields of focus.
Educational Development: The Alaska Alumnae chapter funds and implements three youth initiatives. Delta Academy is a program for young women (ages 11-14) dedicated to achievement in their present and future. EMBODI is a program for young men (ages 11-18) dedicated to leadership in all fields of study. Delta GEMS is a program for young women (ages 14-18) aimed at successful college entry and completion. Each of these programs have courses on leadership, financial management, political action, and professional preparation.
Economic Development: The Alaska Alumnae chapter is focused on providing resources to the Anchorage community regarding proper financial management and home ownership. This year we are working diligently to support small businesses owned by women and minorities.
Physical & Mental Health: The Alaska Alumnae chapter believes that physical and mental health are the cornerstones to self-worth and self-development. We are involved in a number of worthy causes including the Making Strides Against Breast Cancer Walk and the Alaska Run for Women. Both events provide us with the opportunity to get healthy and raise money for worthwhile organizations dedicated to supporting women.
International Awareness & Involvement: Alaska is a remote and unique state with resource challenges. In an effort to bring awareness to the difficulty for remote communities, the Alaska Alumnae chapter is dedicated to providing goods and services to those in need. This year we will partner with the Korea Alumnae chapter to provide support to Jacob's House, a children's orphanage in Korea.
Political Awareness & Involvement: The Alaska Alumnae chapter's lifeline is social action. Simply put, without action there is no power. This year we will travel to Juneau to make our political voice known to those making decisions in Alaska.
The Alaska Alumnae Chapter is a collection of educated, powerful women who are dedicated to the consistent action it takes to make real change in the world. We hope you support our community efforts, attend a session for one of our youth programs, or participate in our fundraisers. We are eager to continue our work as advocates for the social and political position of women.
Thank you for visiting our website. We appreciate your time, love, and support as we complete God's work in Anchorage, Alaska.
