Chapters in several areas throughout the country recognized early on the importance of mentoring young women in the community. The first Zeta group, for high school girls, was nationally organized in the late 1960s. Since then, Zeta Phi Beta has developed a comprehensive youth program for girls ages 4-18.
Lambda Zeta Chapter sponsors the following youth groups:
Archonettes - 14-18 year old youth group. Officially recognized in 1968 as the high school auxiliary. There are over 100 Archonette groups.
Amicettes - 9-13 year old youth group. Added to the Zeta structure at the 50th Anniversary Boule in 1970 as the junior-high auxiliary. There are presently more than 100 Amicette groups.
Pearlettes - 4-8 year old youth group. First proposed in the Southern Region in 1991. At Boule 1994, the national body officially adopted the Pearlettes as the third national youth auxiliary.
Lambda Zeta Chapter's youth groups are very active, participating in a variety of cultural, community service, and personal enrichment activities throughout the year.
Our young ladies reguarly host the following activities:
Lambda Zeta Chapter's youth groups are also highly accomplished and award-winning. Each year, they compete in a myriad of competitions at the Southern Region Youth Retreat. Our young ladies come away with top prizes in areas such as stepping, scrapbooking, and the spelling bee!
