The Omega Gents Youth Academy has been established by Phi Phi Chapter of Omega Psi Phi Fraternity. The Omega Gents program is based on our Cardinal Principles (Manhood, Scholarship, Perseverance and Uplift) designed to teach and encourage high school males to positively define, plan, pursue and achieve their goals.
Observed each November this program is designed to recognize those individuals at the local and international levels who have contributed to community uplift. A High School Essay Contest is held in conjunction with Achievement Week.
The Phi Phi Chapter participates in activities that will uplift the Richmond and surrounding communities. Some of the activities include: Feeding 500, voter registration, Assault on Illiteracy; Habitat for Humanity; mentoring; and participation in fundraisers for charitable organizations.
Our Talent Hunt program provides exposure, encouragement and financial assistance to talented young people in the Richmond area participating in the performing arts. Winners are awarded recognition and may be given college scholarships.
March 12th of each year chapters conduct an appropriate service to recall the memory of those members who have entered into Omega Chapter.
