The Symposium is just one initiative of their national signature program, Project Reassurance, which has incorporated the theme of “H3: It’s All About Me – Healthy Choices, Healthy Living, Healthy Generations.” The 2018 Youth Symposium theme is “Creating Connections: The Building Blocks of Leadership.” We know that investing in youth leadership not only ensures that the future generation is equipped with competencies necessary for strong leadership but enhances young people’s understanding of how to be accountable and inspiring leaders.

Chapters nationwide will host the symposium, as a unified effort to support youth. “Members of Sigma Gamma Rho believe in encouraging and mentoring youth. We are proud to sponsor this annual initiative. It is important to work with community partners to develop young people in all facets of their lives, educationally, socially and emotionally.
