Theta Pi Chapter
Omega Gentlemen Youth Mentoring Program
The Omega Gents Youth Mentoring Program was established and facilitated by Theta Pi Chapter of Omega Psi Phi Fraternity. The Omega Gents Program is designed to teach and encourage young African-American men in middle and high school to positively define, plan, pursue and achieve their goals.
The Program includes several educational workshops and outings, an College Precatory Academic Enrichment Program, In-state and out of state college campus visits and tours, community service projects, career visibility/development outings, rites of passage and social and recreational outings.
Our formal program occurs during the traditional academic year, from September to June. The official commencement for the Program year is the Annual Youth Mentoring Camping Trip, which is held in conjunction with other Northern California Chapters of Omega Psi Phi that sponsor youth mentoring programs.
The Omega Gentlemen Mentoring Program delivers it service to young men based on our cardinal principals ( Manhood, Scholarship, Uplift, and Perseverance). Young men who participate in the Omega Gents Program benefit by experiencing personal development essential to their long-term success. They develop academically, socially and emotionally. They grow through various support services and exposure to new and positive experiences that reinforce critical life skills. Omega Gents also develop a sense of community by participating in a wide range of service projects. They build confidence necessary to visualize, believe, and pursue their dreams. Finally, Omega Gents complete their program with a network of peers and friends to provide continued support.
