-A. Xinos or Tops
-B. College Guidance Groups
-C. Recreational Programs for Youth

The aims of the sorority, established by the Founders, have been the sincere goals of each chapter through the years. They are:

(1) To promote the highest ideals of the teaching profession.
(2) To foster a spirit of sisterhood among teachers.
(3) To encourage youth to attain higher levels of education and character.

A person must be actively engaged in teaching, or a related field of education at the time of initiation. Beside classroom teachers, a large number are supervisors and administrators. Many hold doctorate degrees, and instruct in colleges and universities.

Theme: "Strengthening Today's Youth for Tomorrow's Challenge"
