ENS - Rhoer Club Logo Updated.png


Founder Mary Lou Allison Gardner Little had a love for youth and the development of their full potential.  The Rhoer Club was founded in 1939 at the 14th International Boule in New York City, NY. It was during this boule, December 27th - 30th members of Sigma Gamma Rho Sorority agreed to mentor, motivate and encourage Rhoer Club members to pursue their dreams, achieve high scholastic standards, and advance in their personal and professional pursuits. The first Rhoer Club was organized in 1940 by the Alpha Eta Chapter.  Sigma Gamma Rho is dedicated to helping Rhoers grow to be women of substance dedicated to service.


The purpose of the Rhoer Club is to provide a positive experience for young women ages 12 to 18 in leadership development, academic counseling, personal counseling, mentoring, community service, and rites of passage.

Rhoer clubs offer girls the opportunity to participate in sorority activities,  youth development programs, learn about their heritage, and deal with the challenges youth face today.  Community service, leadership, scholarship and sisterhood are the hallmarks of the activity of the Rhoer Club.  Rhoer Clubs are organized on a local, regional and national level.
