Our national theme is "The Power to Make a Difference”. As a complement to the programming delivered at the chapter level, the National Programmatic Thrust focuses on initiatives that will equip our members and youth with the power to make a difference in our chapters, communities and in the lives of children around the country.
Our programming thrust is focused around these key areas: EDUCATION, CULTURAL, CIVIC, SOCIAL/RECREATIONAL, and HEALTH.
For program planning, the children in our chapter are divided into the following groups:
Grade Group 1, Snickers: Preschool-Kindergarten

Grade Group 3, Twix: 3rd - 5th grade
Grade Group 4, Tweens: 6th - 7th grade
