Sigma Beta Club History
In 1950 Phi Beta Sigma Fraternity became the first Greek organization to develop a youth auxiliary group. Under the direction of Dr. Parlette L. Moore the Sigma Beta Club was founded. 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.
The Sigma Beta Clubs’ four major principles of focus are on Culture, Athletics, Social & Educational needs. The Sigma Beta Club offers a unique opportunity to develop values, leadership skills and social/cultural awareness in our youth during their developmental years. 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 Fraternity, Inc. is confident that investing in our youth today will produce the effective leaders of tomorrow. Sigma Beta Club programs are geared to meet the needs of its members, while at the same time providing them with a well rounded outlook that is needed to cope with today’s society.
