Rhoer Affiliates 

A love for youth and the development of their full potential was the primary motivating factor that inspired Founder Mary Lou Allison Gardner Little to organize Sigma Gamma Rho Sorority, Inc. Young people today face challenges that could never have been imagined years ago, but such challenges provide the sorority with opportunites to carry on the vision of Little.

Rhoers are young girls organized on a local, regional and national level. The Rhoer affiliates are working to help other young people while they learn about their heritage and develop leadership skills. Sigma Gamma Rho is dedicated to helping Rhoers to grow to be women of substance dedicated to service.

Rhoer Affiliates, ages 12-17, develop leadership skills and additional preparation for college. They also do community service and volunteer to help other young people. Characteristics of successful members include:

  • Good character

  • Outstanding social qualities

  • Commitment to serve

  • Poise

  • Self-control
