On behalf of the officers and
membership of Alpha Kappa Alpha Sorority, Inc.®, Zeta Chi Omega Chapter, it is
with great excitement that I welcome you to our site. Chartered on May 25, 1956 in Arlington
Virginia, Zeta Chi Omega continues a rich legacy of serving the greater
Arlington and Alexandria communities of Northern Virginia. The mission established by our founders in
1908 remains strong today - to be of service to all mankind.
Throughout the years, Zeta Chi
Omega has served the community by providing a host of services, including: meal
service to the homeless; scholarship program for deserving students; after-school
tutoring and educational programs; ongoing voter registration and restoration
activities; annual Senior Citizens holiday program; economic empowerment
workshops; global outreach projects; and community awareness programs. The services we provide support our current
international program, "Global Leadership through Timeless Service," and
continue to meet the demands of those in need.
Through our charitable arm, the Ivy Foundation of Northern Virginia,
Inc., we are also able to provide contributions to key community partners. With our mission clearly in mind, we look
forward to the next chapter in our journey a sisterhood of service.
I invite you to get engaged with
