Why ESA?


“Powerful Network that Brings Good People Together”

Epsilon Sigma Alpha (ESA) International is a powerful network that brings good people together to accomplish good things in the local, national, and global communities. Founded in 1929, ESA offers programs and projects to help make a positive difference in the lives of others. ESA continued to develop its interest for serving others, especially children. In 1972, ESA adopted St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital as its first international service project, and ESA continues to be the largest third-party donor to the hospital. Local chapters also are encouraged to support state and local charitable projects. Today, ESA continues to take an active role in hands-on projects such as “Hope for Heroes” to benefit military personnel and their families. ESA also established its own “Care Connection” to assist members and close friends and family in times of personal need.

In 1988, the first collegiate chapter of ESA was colonized on the campus of Ball State University. Since that time, many more collegiate chapters have been colonized. The growth of these chapters has been impressive. Collegiate ESA is known for setting high standards for leadership development and service on campuses across the nation. ESA’s unique programs provide each member with the training, education, and support they need to promote successful public service, while developing personal and professional skills in management, public relations, and overall leadership.

The letters ESA stand for Education, Service, and Association.

ESA continues to bring good people together to prepare them to develop their positive potential through both good and difficult times. ESA’s network of more than 700 local and campus chapters and its more than 10,000 members continue to create a better world through excellent work locally, nationally, and internationally.
