about beta

Since 1991, Beta Club has helped about seven million students learn to make a life for themselves and has awarded over $5 million in scholarships.


It has become the nation’s largest independent, educational youth organization with more than 450,000 active members and over 8,750 clubs nationally and internationally.


The organization was founded in 1934 by Dr. John W. Harris, a professor at Wofford College in Spartanburg, South Carolina. His vision and Beta’s mission has remained the same for all these years, and most everyone who has been fortunate enough to be called a member has embraced those ideals and applied them to their own lives.
