SIGMA BETA CLUB
The Full Story
In the early 1950s, Phi Beta Sigma Fraternity became the first Greek organization to develop a youth auxiliary group. Under the direction of Dr. Parlett L. Moore, the Sigma Beta Club (www.sigmabetaclub.org) was founded. In 1995 the National Sigma Beta Club Foundation, Inc. (not-for-profit) was established by the Fraternity to govern and manage the Clubs.
As the Fraternity’s National Director of Education, 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. Our Sigma Beta Clubs, now governed by our National Sigma Beta Club Foundation, Inc. provide services to youths in their communities.
Phi Beta Sigma Fraternity, Inc.’s interest in fostering the development of youth into effective leaders has been realized in the establishment of strong and productive Sigma Beta Club chapters all across the country.
