Zeta predicates herself on the precepts of Scholarship, Service, Sisterhood, and Finer Womanhood. Zeta was the first Greek-letter organization to charter a chapter in Africa (1948); to form adult and auxiliary groups-the Amicae, Archonette, Pearlettes, and Amicettes; and to be constitutionally bound to a brother group, Phi Beta Sigma Fraternity, Inc. The sorority was founded on the simple belief that sorority elitism and socializing should not overshadow the real mission for progressive organizations-to address societal mores, ills, prejudices, poverty, and health concerns of the day. Zeta's national and local service and leadership programs include the National Education Foundation, Stork Nest, Z-HOPE and ZOL.
