Seven Roses Legacy Foundation is a sponsor of Eta Nu Sigma Chapter, Brooklyn & Queens Alumnae of Sigma Gamma Rho Sorority, Inc.’s Annual Youth Symposium!
The theme for this year is Elevating our Youth: Civically, Socially and Physically. We can’t wait to share with you an amazing day of classes, workshops and more!
The Sigma Youth Symposium was designed to highlight some of the prevalent concerns that negatively impact our youth: drugs, teen violence, abuse, low self-esteem, suicide, teen pregnancy, etc. The event is historically held annually by each Alumnae Chapter, simultaneous Sigma Youth Symposiums address issues that affect teens today. Chapters nationwide will host their local symposiums on the 2nd Saturday in March, as a unified effort to support our youth.
Our annual key fundraising event to support youth programs is the Golden Mother’s Day Scholarship Jazz Brunch has been cancelled this year due to the pandemic. I hope to return to our celebrations in 2021. Our signature event, The Golden Mother’s Day Scholarship Jazz Brunch’s primary purpose is to showcase the awarding of scholarships to excelling high school students, to aid in their scholastic endeavors as well as to honor and celebrate matriarchs and community leaders.
Check back with us next year as we celebrate our resilient community of achievers.
