Making an impact in early development…
A unique feature of Sigma Omega Nu is that each chapter selects a philanthropy that allows them to help their unique communities.
In 2014, the Gamma Chapter decided to peruse a philanthropic partnership with Isla Vista Youth Projects Inc., a non profit organization that provides families and children who attend IV elementary with resources such as after school tutoring and child care programs.
However this year 2017, Gamma Chapter has decided to change our philanthropy to Girls Inc , an organization "inspiring all girls to be strong, smart, & bold." Along with our own values, Girls Inc encourages women to explore the world around them, use their voices, and "strive to be responsible, confident, and independent young women."
We strongly believe that our presence will empower young women to truly feel beautiful and inspire any girl to follow her dreams. Every member of SON supports one another so that we take pride within ourselves as well. Volunteering throughout the community grants us a personal connection with these women to help fulfill Girls Inc's mission.
