CARVER FOUNDATION OF NORWALK PARTNERSHIP

Take a look at the partnership we developed with the Carver Foundation of Norwalk to mentor young men. In September 2019 we began monthly engagement sessions that leveraged our Education Demonstration Project (EDP) - a program that allows our members and guest speakers to demonstrate the benefit of education, academic excellence, discipline, and the pursuit of meaningful goals. The mission of the Carver Foundation of Norwalk “to close opportunity gaps for all children and to ensure they graduate high school on time college- and career-ready” perfectly aligns to the goals of The Opportunity Foundation.

Sigma Pi Phi is the first African-American Greek-lettered organization. Sigma Pi Phi was founded in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, on May 15, 1904. The fraternity quickly established chapters (referred to as "member boulés") in Chicago, IL and then Baltimore, MD. The founders included two doctors, a dentist and a physician. When Sigma Pi Phi was founded, black professionals were not offered participation in the professional and cultural associations organized by the white community. Sigma Pi Phi has over 5,000 members and 126 chapters throughout the United States and the West Indies.
