Officially recognized in 1968 as the high school auxiliary, there are over 100 Archonette groups. In June of 2000 Zeta Phi Beta Sorority, Inc. Kappa Epsilon Zeta oversaw the formation of the Archonette Club in the Bronx by the following charter members:
- Andrea Benjamin
- Sherisse Benjamin
- Valene Benjamin
- Linda Bennett
- Gabrielle Cedeno
- Roberta Linen
- Jazmyn Parker
- Joya Taylor
- Kimberly Wells
Years later we strive to continue this trailblazing program under Zeta Phi Beta Sorority, Inc. by continuing to serve as mentors to young ladies in the Bronx through this high school auxiliary program.
Who Are the Archonettes?
The Archonette Club consists of high school aged young ladies from 14-18 years who show interest in serving their community and personal development. Members grow culturally, socially and educationally as they are exposed to new experiences by their mentors of Kappa Epsilon Zeta chapter.
What do the Archonettes do?
As members of the Archonette Club, the young ladies are expected to also exemplify the same principles as their Zeta mentors. They are expected to hold high regard scholarship, show love and respect towards those around them, serve their community and to conduct themselves in a positive and affirming manner.
The Archonette Program provides activities which present opportunities to:
- Encourage the individual to accept responsibility
- Develop new interests
- Work toward creating happiness for others
- Develop an awareness of the need to share responsibilities and to understand one another in order to achieve a common goal
- Develop your unique personality
- Make responsible decisions, develop social confidence, and relate to peers, parents, and adults in general.
Being a member of the Archonette Club will provide various opportunities for fun with fellow mentors and mentees as well as room for learning and personal growth.
