AKAdettes 

Tau Epsilon Omega initiated the AKAdettes program in 1997. This signature program impacts the lives of girls in grades 6 through 8 by providing leadership development, civic engagement, enhanced academic preparation and character building. The increasing demands of the twenty-first century mandate our youth to be better leaders at a younger age making smart choices with positive consequences.

The program provides food on the third weekend of each month to 60 families in 6 elementary schools in the cities of East Point and College Park, Georgia who may otherwise go hungry. The contents of each backpack include fresh foods and healthy alternatives to snack foods, such as raisin boxes, fresh fruit and beverages with less sugar and more fruit juices.
