Chapters in several areas throughout the country recognized early on the importance of mentoring young women in the community. The first Zeta group, for high school girls, was nationally organized in the late 1960s. Since then, Zeta Phi Beta has developed a comprehensive youth program for girls ages 4-18.

Lambda Zeta Chapter sponsors the following youth affiliates:
