Phi Beta Sigma nurtures individuality while providing greater opportunities for Brotherhood, Scholarship, and Service. Fraternities have personalities. As you would measure an individual, so you should measure a fraternity. Phi Beta Sigma seeks to attract men of vision and character. Such men will mold the future of the Fraternity and carry its ideals and principles on to the next generation.
Locally, the brothers of the Gamma Gamma Sigma Chapter of Phi Beta Sigma are involved in a great many endeavors geared toward the betterment of our local community. From volunteering and fund raising for local and national organizations, donating book bags, clothes, and gifts to less-fortunate, we have shown a commitment not only to our brotherhood, but to the citizens of Broward County.
Our founders deeply wished to create an organization that viewed itself as “a part of” the general community rather than “apart from” the general community. They believed that each potential member should be judged by his own merits rather than his family background or affluence…without regard of race, nationality, skin tone or texture of hair. They wished and wanted their fraternity to exist as part of even a greater brotherhood which would be devoted to the “inclusive we” rather than the “exclusive we”.
From its inception, the Founders also conceived Phi Beta Sigma as a mechanism to deliver services to the general community. Rather than gaining skills to be utilized exclusively for themselves and their immediate families, the founders of Phi Beta Sigma held a deep conviction that they should return their newly acquired skills to the communities from which they had come. This deep conviction was mirrored in the Fraternity’s motto, “Culture For Service and Service For Humanity”.
Perhaps the most apparent offering of any fraternity is Brotherhood. This bond is alive and well between all brothers of Phi Beta Sigma. This bond is made possible by our working together on chapter projects as well as brotherhood events where we just take time to have fun. The brothers here enjoy the same bond with brothers worldwide. This idea of Brotherhood is part of all that we do as a fraternity and filters into many aspects of our life. The strength of our Brotherhood comes from the wide variety of men within our Brotherhood. This is not to say that every man can join Phi Beta Sigma, but that within our Brotherhood, there is room for many different types of men. Phi Beta Sigma does not attempt to clone its members; the individual talents of each man are seen as beneficial to the whole.
It is vital to the success of our Fraternity that we identify and train qualified new members who are committed to community service and to the personal and professional ideals upon which our Brotherhood was founded. We hope you will consider the part Phi Beta Sigma can play in your life.
