- About Groove
To perpetuate the Fellowship's purposes, the National Office encourages affiliate chapters to participate in and support community service and civic programs aimed at youth mentoring, academic tutoring, scholarships, and activities that address the problems of homelessness, drug abuse, and alcoholism.
To better serve our communities, the men of Groove Phi Groove Social Fellowship, Inc. have pledged to support endeavors that project positive images of black American men and help to move us forward. This is an increasingly important challenge, as many people tend to focus on only the negative elements. We don’t want to lose sight of those achievements that required the anguish, blood, and lives of the many black Americans who were essential in building this nation. The men of Groove Phi Groove have accepted the challenge and recognize that our future success depends on our ability to serve as positive role models who will instill positive moral values in both our own children and those young, black American boys and men who may not have positive male influences in their lives.
The men of Groove Phi Groove will continually strive to set the right example by doing our best, pulling our own weight, and keeping our families, communities, and the Fellowship first and foremost in our hearts and minds. Through these convictions, the Fellowship's contributions to society shall never end.
The strength of our Fellowship can be measured only by the ties that bind us.
The men of Groove Phi Groove Social Fellowship, Inc. actively support and participate in various programs and projects which aim to serve the communities in which we live. Some of these programs and projects focus on black Americans; however, the Fellowship does not discriminate based on race, color, sex, national origin, or physical impairment. Nor do we provide a financial benefit to individual members of the Fellowship, as Groove Phi Groove is a 501(c)(7) not-for-profit entity, and the Groove Fund is a 501(c)(3) not-for-profit charitable entity.
