The Kappa League is one of the Guide Right programs that is designed to improve the self-image of African-American youth in the community by providing them with challenging and rewarding experiences that will enhance their lives. Our Kappa League program was designed in direct response to the continuing crisis in the African-American community regarding our younger males. The program addresses some of those problems facing the African-American youth through a variety of seminars, lectures, field trips and workshops which are all geared toward improving such characteristics as the student's cultural awareness/diversity, academic achievement, and personal development. Our target group consists of African-American males at the middle school and high school age level residing in Prince George's County, Maryland.
The organization and structure of the Kappa League is designed to operate as a club. Through club oriented activities, the officers and membership of the Kappa League perform projects that expose them to planning, execution, reporting ideas, and simulating good leadership characteristics designed to raise their aspiration levels.
Since the fundamental purpose of Kappa Alpha Psi Fraternity, Inc. is Achievement, it is the Fraternity's primary purpose to help the young men of the Kappa League achieve worthy goals and to make constructive contributions to their communities when they become leaders.
Elections are held and the Kappa Leaguers are instructed on the duties of each office, Parliamentary procedures, and meeting facilitation. Committees are formed for planning and coordinating specific activities.
All sessions are held on Saturdays, except for any special activity that may be during the week. During the sessions, the Kappa Leaguers learn Parliamentary procedures, meeting facilitation, and work on presentation, written, oratorical, and interpersonal skills through various activities associated with the operation of the Kappa League club. The club activities, workshops/lectures, and field trips combined are designed to assist in the growth and development of the Kappa Leaguer. The Kappa Leaguers are involved in planning and executing at least two (2) community service activities during the school year. The Kappa Leaguers will also select and vote on at least three (3) field trips for the year. Field trips selected must adhere to the goals and purposes of the Kappa League.
