Auxiliary Groups

Archonettes - are high school-aged young ladies 14 to 18 years who demonstrate an interest in the goals and the ideals of scholarship, sisterly love, and community service.

Amicettes - are girls 9 to 13 years of age who are willing to strive toward the high ideals of Zeta Phi Beta Sorority and who demonstrate potential for leadership in service to the community.

Pearlettes- are girls under 9 years old who are mentored by ladies of Zeta Phi Beta Sorority, Inc. to become outstanding leaders in their community.


In 1940, graduate chapters began to notice that there were women in the community with the same ideals as those women of the sorority. Yet, for various reasons these women were not able to attend college.   

As a result of their interest in the sorority, many different auxiliary organizations cropped up throughout the United States. The one that has lasted throughout the years and that has been recognized as the only Zeta Booster Club originated in Omaha, Nebraska in 1947. This group is called the Amicae, which means “friends” in Latin. The purpose of the Amicae is to lend assistance to Zeta activities, to promote good public relations between Zetas and other women in the community, to make non-Greek women feel closer to the program of a Greek-letter group, and to assure more cooperation in community projects sponsored by Zetas.  

Membership is open to family members, friends and women recommended by any of the city’s chapters. There are currently over 175 Amicae chapters in the United States.
