On March 22, 1981, dynamic and dedicated women of Delta Sigma Theta Sorority, Inc., chartered Century City Alumnae Chapter, hence creating the 679th chapter of our beloved sisterhood. At the time of the Chapter's inception our public service projects were focused on increasing the awareness of our community as it relates to teen pregnancy, domestic violence, literacy, and exposure to the arts.
Now, some 30 years later, our public service projects have grown to encompass the changing needs of our community, which includes the adoption of Delta Sigma Theta's Five Point Programmatic Thrust:
Dr. Betty Shabazz Delta Academy
McAllister School for Girls
Dr. Jeanne L. Noble Delta G.E.M.S.
Live Theatre for Children
International Awareness and Involvement
International Service Project
Physical and Mental Health
Political Awareness and Involvement
Delta Days in Sacramento
The promotion of higher education is also an essential component to the vitality of our Chapter. Additionally, we award scholarships to women who are matriculating in a graduate or professional program in a field of study where African American women are typically underrepresented. In 2003, we established the Sara Finney Scholarship that is awarded to women who are pursuing undergraduate or graduate degrees in the field of film, communication, or journalism.
Century City's goal each year is to have an impact on the community we serve by promoting programs and projects that enrich lives through our devoted sisterhood and committed service. Our commensurate goal is to ensure that we uplift the mission of the national organization , which is to be "an organization of college educated women committed to the constructive development of its members and to public service with a primary focus on the Black community."
We appreciate that you have taken the time to learn more about our chapter and the meaningful work that we are doing to improve the lives of those who are underrepresented in our community. We hope that you will visit our website often to stay abreast of our various public service projects and to learn more about our fundraisers that support these projects.
