I. Futurama

Chi Eta Phi Sorority, Inc. has long been aware of the continuing education problem of the obtainment of basic and advanced educational advancement due to ever increasing financial requirements. It has therefore made as one of its major focuses in its plan of service to humanity the provision of scholarship funding to those candidates deemed to meet the criteria developed by the sorority.

The National Program and Projects Committee has the responsibility of implementing a program to strengthen and make more efficient the participation of Honorary members, members-at-large, corporate industries and friends of Chi Eta Phi Sorority, Inc., in the funding of Futurama via a program of pledging and financial donations.

II. National Service Projects

Chi Eta Phi Sorority, Inc. has traditionally directed its service program outwardly in conformance with its motto of "Service For Humanity."

In an age where life is filled with changing and differing circumstances, it follows that increased methods of program implementation are needed.

Recognizing this need, the sorority has formulated the following multi-faceted service programs.

1. Health screening
2. Health education
3. Tutorial programs
4. Chi Care-Calls
5. Tubman Demonstration School (TDS) in Monrovia, Liberia, West Africa.

This multi-faceted service program is flexible in allowing individual chapters to select one or more facets of the programs in accordance with expertise available and community needs.

The sorority has 51 graduate and 19 Beta Chapters throughout the United States and Monrovia, Liberia, West Africa.

Plans are underway to develop a film that tells the Chi Eta Phi Sorority, Inc.'s story and at the same time serve as a recruitment tool.
