African American Health
Swing Phi Swing Social Fellowship, Inc.® is committed to actualized change in the lives of our members and the communities we support and in which we live. As members, we have committed our lives to service in order to foster the positive growth and sustainability of the women, children, and communities we work alongside. Read more about our National Programs below and learn more about how we can work together to build a relationship and a nation from the grassroots level.
The goal of this initiative is to create awareness of the major health concerns and issues that disproportionately affect African-American women and heighten minority communities (i.e., Breast Cancer, Sickle Cell Anemia, HIV/AIDS, Diabetes). We accomplish this by being advocates for health education and increased access to health resources. Local chapters coordinate health education clinics and informational programs to include guest speakers and service groups.
This initiative is vital to the future of our nations youth. It is the goal of Swing Phi Swing to promote positive self-esteem, academic achievement, scholarship opportunities, and self-respect among young ladies. The mentoring program is designed to encourage and provide opportunities for them to become community leaders on relevant topics that affect youth. Expected outcomes include academic improvement, leadership development, and an increase in confidence in social skills and structured relationships.
This national initiative is to aid and equip students and teachers with the proper resources to produce a positive learning environment. We fulfill this objective by providing new and sustainable classroom supplies and materials essential to any learning experience. This initiative allows local chapters to continue expanding their resources and services to "promote higher intelligence" throughout their community elementary, middle, and high schools in need.
This initiative expands the African American Health initiative by actively seeking and promoting a more healthy lifestyle. It is designed to focus attention on the importance of minority women taking control of their health such as exercising regularly and eating healthier. Chapters are encouraged to sponsor health fairs, seminars, and programs to provide user-friendly information and tools related to nutrition, food, hygiene, and other health issues.
