President’s Message

Upsilon Omega Chapter of Alpha Kappa Alpha Sorority, Incorporated ®, was the first sorority chartered by college-trained African-American women in Richmond, Virginia in 1925. Since that time, the chapter has continuously implemented programs of service for women, men, youth, and children throughout the Richmond metropolitan area. Initiatives addressing the family, positive youth development, the arts, support for education, health and wellness, economic security, and civic involvement comprise the rich legacy of the chapter.

Welcome to our website which proudly shares our illustrious history and provides other pertinent information. Our programs and activities are designed to carry out the mission and goals of Alpha Kappa Alpha Sorority, Incorporated ®, through implementation of the international program focus, Launching New Dimensions of ServiceSM.
