Programs

Programs and initiatives sponsored and supported by the Greensboro Alumni Chapter bring people together to actively build better communities locally and a better world nationally. The central focus of our activities is to enrich the lives of both our members and those who we directly serve.

These programs are made possible entirely by member contributions and funding from the Greensboro Alumni Chapter.

Our core programming addresses education, the environment, health, the arts, careers, personal achievement and leadership development. Take a moment to review the information about these programs and initiatives. Feel free to contact us about taking advantage of what we have to offer.

All volunteers are welcome to participate in any of our projects, at any level of participation. Donations are always appreciated.

Diamond Thursday Networking Event – 1st Thursday of the month

Guide RightGuide Right is a program for the educational and occupational guidance of youth, primarily inspirational and informational in character. Its reach extends to high
schools and colleges alike.

Conceived in 1921 by Leon W. Stewart and suggested at the twelfth Grand Chapter of Kappa Alpha Psi, Guide Right became the Fraternity’s National Service Program.
Jesse Jerome Peters, later to become the eighth Grand Polemarch, was chairman of the committee, during the administration of W. Ellis Stewart as Grand Polemarch.

Guide Right is administrated by a National Director and a Guide Right Commission. The Guide Right Commission consists of the Director and twelve Province Guide
Right Coordinators, one from each Province, appointed by their respective Province Polemarchs. The Director is uniquely qualified to perform the duties of this
office and is appointed by the Grand Polemarch. He prepares such directives as are necessary for the successful and efficient observance of this National movement.
He also edits and prepares the Manual for the universal use of Undergraduate and Alumni chapters.

The programs of Guide Right are “Kappa League”, “Kappa Alpha Psi Scholarship”, “A-MAN”, and the premier program, “Kamp Kappa”, which enables inner city boys to
attend camp in Mississippi.

Kappa League
History

Under the chairmanship of Mel Davis, the Los Angeles Alumni Chapter’s Social Action Program took the form of training activity for young men of the
Alain Leroy Locke High School. Called the Kappa Instructional Leadership League, it was designed to help young men grow, receive, and develop
their leadership talents in every phase of human endeavor. It provided both challenging and rewarding experiences, which richly enhanced their lives.
Membership was open to male students from the tenth through the twelfth grades. The fraternity sought to help these young men to achieve worthy
goals for themselves and make constructive contributions to their community when leadership roles become the responsibility.Kappa League was founded on Thursday, February 12, 1969, by the Los Angeles Alumni Chapter of Kappa Alpha Psi Fraternity, Inc., at Alain LeRoy Locke
High School. Kappa League was adopted by the Grand Chapter of Kappa Alpha Psi Fraternity, Inc. at the 56th Grand Chapter which was held August 12-15,
1970. The founders of the Kappa Instructional Leadership League were Mel L. Davis an Elder Watson Diggs Awardee and Edgar H. Bishop.

Kappa League is a program for the educational, occupational and social guidance of male students in grades 6th-12th. The nucleus and primary focus
of the Kappa League revolves around the “Five Phases” which are:

Self Identity

Discipline, Assurance, Awareness, Appearance

Training

Academic, Career-Choice, Preparation, and Organization

 Beautillian Militaire Scholarship Program

The purpose of the Beautillion Militaire Scholarship Program is to provide training for high school seniors before entering the college and university
system. This is achieved via participating in community service objectives, workshops and attending cultural events to better prepare them for their
collegiate experience. However, the main objective of the program is for the Beaus to solicit sponsorships within their communities, and raise funds
for scholarships to assist with their educational pursuits. The KAP Foundation and the Greensboro (NC) Alumni Chapter of Kappa Alpha Psi Fraternity,
Incorporated takes pride in taking on such an event and considers it a worthy and noble cause.

 

History

In the Middle Eastern Province (NC & WV), the Beautillion originated in Charlotte, NC and was brought to Greensboro in 1981 by Brother Bennie Goodman. The
intent was to give male students a forum and a chance to raise money for college. It is a formal program and serves as rites of passage for high school senior
males. Throughout the program are scheduled workshops that the Beaus attend (i.e. Time Management, Financial Aid, Table Etiquette, etc.) of which parents are
invited to attend. This gives the Beaus the same opportunity that is given to high school young ladies who participate in the AKA Cotillion, Delta Jabberwock
and/or Zeta Debutante Ball.
