Iota Youth Alliance (IYA)
Gamma Xi Omega’s youth mentoring program falls under our fraternity’s Iota Youth Alliance, national initiative. In this program the brothers of Iota Phi Theta – Gamma Xi Omega chapter have been working in conjunction with the Top Ladies of Distinction, mentoring groups of young men from 5th thru 8th grade.
The brothers of Gamma XI Omega are continuing their partnership with The Cincinnati Chapter of the Top Ladies of Distinction to provide mentoring for male students in the A-TEAAM (Ambassadors of The Evers Academy for African-American Males) This mentoring group is based on the life and values of slain civil rights leader Medgar Evers. The Brothers of Iota assist the boys who have been selected to participate in the A-TEAAM program with navigating the challenging nationally recognized curriculum. Over the course of the program, the Ambassadors are able to connect with their mentors and develop meaningful relationships.
