The members of our organization are called Pharaohs. The Pharaohs are comprised of high school boys and girls who desire to improve their opportunities in life and to become productive, caring, and responsible citizens. After high school, the Pharaohs may join
The leadership skill-building they receive will instill confidence in them so they can pursue paths in life to which they may not have otherwise been exposed. The goal is to open doors for them so they can avoid some of the pitfalls inherent in coming of age and pursue paths that are more accommodating of successful outcomes based upon their unique interests, talents, and competencies.
Pharaohs represent many segments of high school students. Membership is limited. All students are not eligible to become Pharaohs, Pharaohs are scholars, athletes, and leaders in their high school community who are admired and respected by students, faculty and administration.
CHARACTERISTICS OF PHARAOHS
We engage in a selective process to accept or deny applications to become Pharaohs. Nevertheless, we do not discriminate on the basis of race, color, religion, sex (including sexual orientation or gender identity), national origin, disability, or genetic information (including family medical history). Although chapters will consist of girls and boys, some activities, events, and programs will be separate to focus on issues that may be unique to one group or the other. Even so, the groups will usually come together for common issues. All activities, events, and programs of the Pharaohs will be conducted in a judgment-free zone. Bullying of any kind will not be tolerated.
As Pharaohs Society, Inc. is nonprofit tax-exempt corporation organized as a social club under Section 501(c)(7) of the Internal Revenue Code.
REQUIREMENTS FOR BECOMING A PHARAOH
As a Brotherhood-Sisterhood Organization, local chapters of Pharaohs Society, Inc. will not discriminate on the basis of gender or gender-identity. However, members will sometimes separate into breakout groups according to gender or gender-identity so they may receive focused training geared towards special concerns related to their gender or gender-identify to encourage active participation in a judgment-free environment. Even so, participation in most activities will not consider gender or gender-identity. After all, the goal is to provide a suitable environment for our youth to socialize, compete, and build lifelong friendships.
Organizational experiences with role models of a member's gender or gender-identity will promote a special appreciation for challenges faced by our youth that are influenced by gender or gender-identity. As members may face problems that are unique to their gender or gender-identity in life, breakout groups will offer opportunities for special training based upon gender or gender-identity. Common leadership and social activities may be followed by the separate local chapters providing additional instruction or discussion of gender-specific issues.
