The National Sorority of Phi Delta Kappa, Inc. is a nonprofit organization of professional educators with chapters throughout the United States. Beta Lambda Chapter is located in Winston-Salem.  Donna H. Mickens serves as the president.

The national program, Y.E.S. (Youth, Education, and Service) encourages the development of the potential of youth. The major components of the youth guidance program include leadership training, development of strategies and study methods, which enhance academic achievement, and the development of the students’ social growth. Additionally, the youth consistently participate in meaningful community service.

An annual conference is held in March of each year wherein the rich potential of the youth is enhanced by their participation in relevant workshops that address positive aspects of personal and academic development. The students participate in selected activities and competitions – oratorical, talent, essay, poster displays of science projects, and many others.

There are about 400 youth in attendance at each conference, which is hosted in a hotel that provides the services and security required for such an event. The high school girls are called Xinos and the high school boys are called Kudos. The youth return to school highly motivated for academic, social and personal achievements.

The members of the National Sorority of Phi Delta Kappa Inc. take great pride in our youth whose achievements affirm our commitment to the field of education.

We are seeking the support of businesses, churches, organizations and individuals to help our chapter travel to Dover, Delaware in March for this leadership conference.  We are also gearing up to host this Youth Leadership Conference in Winston-Salem in March of 2019.  Therefore, it is necessary for us to attend this year and extend a North Carolina welcome.
