Kappa League

Kappa League Shield Logo

The Kappa League program was established fraternity-wide over 30 years ago, as the primary program that Alumni Chapters use to mentor young people in their communities. Since the program’s inception, the Jacksonville Alumni Chapter of Kappa Alpha Psi Fraternity, Inc. has helped young adolescent African-American males develop and improve their leadership through the Guide Right Leadership & Development Pro­gram popularly known as the Kappa League.

This leadership & development program uses educational and inspirational tech­niques to promote academic success, career preparedness and life skills. Overall, the program’s aim is to develop fu­ture leaders of tomorrow. The program emphasizes several aspects of leadership development, teamwork and community trusteeship. Activities range from car washes to church visits, from road cleanups to business skill workshops, from commu­nity presentations to the annual Kappa Kampout & Enrichment Weekend.

Through these activities the Jacksonville Alum­ni Chapter assists youth in fostering a positive self-image that rest upon sound ethics and values. Over the past five years, recent participants of the program have demonstrated excellence in the community and have become role models amongst their peers. They are inspired to become future law­yers, businessmen, culinary artists and law enforcement. Therefore, the Guide Right/Kappa League Program has a consistent track record of producing youth reaching their full potential that’s second to none.
