We are women Building Strong Girls!
As Gamma Phi Betas, we are passionate about our philanthropic focus because we know that girls face many social pressures about how they should act and who they should be, making the need for a safe place with supportive mentors even greater. Girls need strong women in their lives who can help them develop the skills needed to succeed in life. Gamma Phi Betas are those women!
We currently have several girls who volunteer as coaches directly with Girls on the Run, an after school program that inspires girls to be joyful, healthy, and confident using a fun, experience-based curriculum which creatively integrates running.
“I became a Girls on the Run coach to help others, but it ended up helping me. The lessons taught through Girls on the Run focus on building self esteem, resisting peer pressure, and how to form healthy relationships. These girls are amazing and beautiful and unique. People change lives and these girls have changed mine.” -Melissa Rhinehart, President

As a chapter, we also host various philanthropy events throughout the year and invite fellow Greeks, students, and the community to attend. All proceeds raised go towards Girls on the Run. For an overview on these fun philanthropic events, check out our videos!
