The Guide Right Program
Our Guide Right Program, sponsored by the Kappa Alpha Psi Jacksonville Foundation, Inc., consists of mentoring youth at local schools throughout the Duval County School District as well as providing scholarships over the last 25 years through our Kappa Scholars Program. Our signature Guide Right Program is our Jacksonville Guide Right Leadership & Development Program better known as the Kappa League. Middle School and High School young men participate in leadership workshops in addition to conducting monthly volunteer activities. The Kappa League also worships together on a quarterly basis at church services around the city.
In addition, the Guide Right Program has partnered with the Jacksonville Chapter of Jack & Jill of America and other community organizations in a variety of leadership activities, financial literacy programs, and college tours. The Jacksonville Silhouettes (the wives of Kappas) work in the Guide Right program by sponsoring etiquette classes and career development activities. The Guide Right program also features a week-long career development series where participants are exposed to fraternity members in a wide variety of professional vocations. The Guide Right program culminates in the annual public meeting where Kappa Scholars, Kappa Leaguers and the community are exposed to a themed-celebration of community honorees at Jacksonville City Hall. The event streams live through coj.net.
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,FL 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.
