Welcome to our youngest heroes!

Operation R.U.B.Y is Delta Phi Chi Military Sorority's, membership-based, Military Child Initiative. Operation R.U.B.Y was established to: Acknowledge, Highlight and Honor the important role military children play in the community and to provide mentors for children in military Families.  

We understand that mentoring isn't parenting, we can't fill those shoes, and definitely not those boots. However, Operation R.U.B.Y was envisioned and developed as a little extra support.

Here in Operation R.U.B.Y, we truly believe "it takes a village to raise a child." ~Glide High!

Membership in Operation Ruby is extended to Young Ladies that have parents currently serving in the United States Armed Forces, or have parents who have served honorably in the past.

Operation R.U.B.Y consists of three-tier levels:

  • Junior Enlisted (Ages: 8-10)

  • Senior Enlisted (Ages: 11-13)

  • Commissioned (Ages: 14-17)

The mission of Operation R.U.B.Y consists of three parts:

MENTOR-our military youth as they go through challenging life transitions and provide them the necessary tools and life skills training that will lead to increased self-esteem and improve interpersonal skills. Studies have shown that youth that are mentored earn higher grades, have better school attendance and more positive attitudes.

ACKNOWLEDGE- our youngest heroes, military children, for their commitment and sacrifice. Our military youth deal with situations like having their parent's in harm's way when they deploy, long and repeated separations, missed birthdays, holidays and sporting events. Delta Phi Chi's mission is to provide resources through tried and true programs and events that will assist our military kids in striving, thriving and getting through the months apart.

HONOR- our youngest heroes (military children) for their commitment and sacrifice. Our Military youth deal with situations like having their parents in harm's way when they deploy, long and repeated separations, missed birthdays, holidays and sporting events. Delta Phi Chi's members will "bridge the gap" by hosting social functions that will allow our military children to experience future possibilities, in absence of their deployed service member, among their peers - led by dedicated members of Delta Phi Chi.
