KIZ Youth Auxiliaries on the Move

Kappa Iota Zeta’s Youth Auxiliaries have been busy with a lot of activities this sorority year. These girls are living in alignment with Zeta’s principles of scholarship, service, sisterhood, and finer womanhood. Just to highlight some of the activities that the young ladies are doing within Kappa Iota Zeta.
In December 2013, the Pearlettes and Kappa Iota Zeta (KIZ) members created goodie bags and stuffed items, baked cookies, and created hand written Christmas cards to distribute to the elderly at the Cosby Senior Center in Atlanta, Georgia.  In January 2014, the Pearlettes and KIZ members partnered with the Champion Kids Projects to distribute care packages to the homeless in downtown Atlanta. Lastly, Pearlette Breana Case was recognized for receiving the highest GPA for the Southeastern Region.
The Amicettes collected body care personal items and donated 20 gift bags for the seniors at the Cosby Spear Center. The girls participated in the Making Strides Against Breast Cancer Walk Volunteer Services, and distributed 700 water bottles to those that are participating in the walk. The Amicettes participated in a dining etiquette session with KIZ and learned how to conduct themselves at a dining establishment. The girls have participated in a letter writing session and learned how to write letters properly. The girls are currently in a pen pal program with the Amicettes of Epsilon Rho Zeta from Baltimore, MD.
The Archonettes attended the Cosby Spear Senior Center with Kappa Iota Zeta and assisted with singing holiday songs, catered lunch, and provided holiday tokens to the seniors. Later, the girls attended a seminar at Paschal restaurant to talk to women in various careers in education, health care management, human resources, human services, and nursing. The girls donated $20.00 for the Making Strides Against Breast Cancer Walk in order to have the chapter meet their financial goal.
These young ladies are paving the way for Zeta. We look forward towards their success and leadership in the auxiliary. Continuing to train a child in the way she should go.
