What We Do
The Omaha Sigma Club prides itself on our commitment to helping develop well-rounded youth to help ensure that each becomes a productive and contributing member in our local community. The following list highlights just a few of the over arching programs that we have developed for our members to achieve this mission.
Academic Enrichment & Mentoring
Club members receive academic assistance and leadership development at the elementary, middle and high school levels. This happens through one-on-one and group approaches to tutoring of Sigma Beta Club members and after school and weekend tutoring by Alumni and Collegiate members in various academic and professional disciplines. Additionally, Sigma Beta Clubs develop partnerships with local institutions, inclusive of colleges and universities, community colleges and trade schools.
Sigma Beta Club members are required to conduct a variety of community service projects. These may include but are not limited to serving the elderly, March of Dimes: March for Babies, Sickle Cell Centers, visiting children in hospitals, volunteering at their library, working with children with disabilities, cleaning up their neighborhood, etc.
Job Training, Savings and Investment
Club members increase their awareness of business ownership as well as the importance of saving and investing at an early age. Club members also learn about various professions via internships, job shadowing, and other avenues to visit job sites.
Sigma Against Teenage Pregnancy Plus
The primary area of focus of the SATAPP Program is providing Sigma Beta Club members with tools they need to make smart choices about healthy lifestyles that will help lead to responsible fatherhood later in life.
Childhood Obesity Initiatives
The Sigma Beta Club Foundation’s Child Obesity Initiative focuses on the mind, body, and spirit. The primary objective is reducing weight and reversing the poor health of adolescents at an early age through the following principles:
- Stepping into shape
