Greetings and welcome from the Alpha Kappa Alpha Sorority, Incorporated, Alpha Theta Omega Chapter!
Chartered on June 15, 1928, Alpha Theta Omega is the “Flagship” Chapter in the Raleigh-Wake County and surrounding area. During almost 94 years, the Chapter has been praised for service and leadership in the community. One such service which is lauded is the Annual Debutante Program, now sponsored in collaboration with ATO, Inc. The Annual Debutante Program grooms young ladies for college and the world and has provided over a million dollars in scholarships. In response to the COVID-19 Pandemic, Alpha Theta Omega Chapter distributed masks, hand-sanitizer, health information, food and paper products to the community. Additionally, we provided masks and nonperishable food products to the local HBCUs.
We proudly implement Alpha Kappa Alpha Sorority, Incorporated’s International Program for 2018-2022. The theme is Exemplifying Excellence through Sustainable Service. The five Targets, Signature Program and seven Impact Days enable our Chapter to extend its reach from the local level to the global community.
