Zeta Auxiliaries

Zeta Phi Beta Sorority, Inc. has long since understood the value of having auxiliary groups. As early as 1940, Zeta Phi Beta utilized contributions made by women who, for whatever reason, were not members of the organization. In fact, Zeta Phi Beta became the first Black Greek-lettered organization to develop both adult and youth auxiliary groups. 

Zeta Youth Affiliates

The first youth clubs were formed in the 1950's under the name of Zetalites, Amicettes and Archonettes. These clubs were composed of young ladies between the ages of 9 and 18 who were matriculating in junior and senior high school.

In July of 1994 at the 74th Boule, the national body officially adopted the Pearlettes as a national youth auxiliary of Zeta Phi Beta Sorority, Inc. In January of 1996, the age range was extended to age 8, instead of 7, in order to create a smooth transition from the Pearlette to Amicette group.

In 2005, UTZ chartered their Youth Auxiliary Groups, which consist of the Pearlettes (ages 4-8), Amicettes (ages 9-13), and Archonettes (ages 14-18). The Youth Groups help spread the importance of scholarship by supporting the chapter’s annual scholarship dinner.

Zeta Amicae

Zeta Amicae are women who do not have a college degree, but have an interest in assisting local auxiliaries with activities. Currently there are over 175 Zeta Amicae groups affiliated through various local Zeta chapters throughout the United States.

Amicae of Redford was chartered on September 24, 2011.
