Zeta Phi Beta was the first Greek letter sorority organized in Africa. More than 500 collegiate and graduate chapters are divided into nine regions in the United States and Africa, the Bahamas, Alaska, Germany, and St. Croix.

The Amicette clubs are for girls ages nine to thirteen, and the Archonette clubs are for young ladies ages 14-18. These individuals are invited to membership based on their interest in the high ideals of Zeta Phi Beta, and demonstrate potential leadership in service to the community.
