Alpha Phi Alpha Fraternity, Inc. is receiving $1 million to continue their work with young men in target cities through their Go-To-High-School, Go-To-College® national program. The program concerns the 2015 Youth Mentoring Grant Opportunity that the fraternity has applied for through the United States Department of Justice’s Office of Juvenile Justice and Delinquency Prevention.

The Go-To-High-School, Go-To-College® program is one that will be a United States Department of Justice “Category 2,” one-on-one and group-mentoring program for participants ages 6-17 years old in twenty-five (25) geographical locations across twenty-two (22) states and five regions of the country. The Go-to-High-School, Go-to-College® program, established in 1922, concentrates on the importance of completing secondary and collegiate education as a road to advancement.

Global Image Consulting assisted the fraternity with submitting the grant that “will focus on 6 goals: Reduce Juvenile Delinquency, Increase Graduation Rates, Develop Mobile Application, Promote Public Safety, Reduce Juvenile Victimization, and Provide Readiness Training,” explained Elvin Dowling, founding partner with Global Image Consulting and Alpha Phi Alpha Member. “The program will target 5 regions.” Dowling continued, “Some of the states included are: Maryland, Louisiana, Mississippi, Illinois, and California.”

Recognized as the world’s oldest intercollegiate fraternity founded by African-American men, Alpha Phi Alpha Fraternity was founded on December 4, 1906 at Cornell University. Since its inception, the organization has truly established itself on leadership and service.

“We aim to engage at least 5,000 student participants with caring mentors who serve as advocates and role models for achieving greater successes in life. Just as importantly, this comprehensive truancy and juvenile delinquency prevention effort offers high school and college readiness training and common sense direction for program participants, providing them with the resources, skills and relationships they need to make positive decisions that help them to become productive members of society,” said Alpha Phi Alpha Fraternity executive director and COO, William Douglass Lyle.

Harlem Alphas Become the First BGLO in 18 Years to Have a Float in the African American Day Parade

Harlem Chapter of Alpha Phi Alpha Fraternity Incorporated organized massive Alpha and AKA participation in the 2017 African American Day Parade in New York this year.

Joined by Alphas and AKA’s from every New York City Chapter, Long Island, Westchester and even Newark, NJ, the 2017 African American Day parade will be long remembered for how the Alphas and AKA’s represented Black Greek Letter organizations.

The Alpha Gamma Lambda Chapter (Harlem Alphas) secured an “Alpha Float” for all members of their Fraternity. According to parade organizers, this marks the first time in 18 years that a Black Greek Letter Organization purchased a float for the parade.

“We are proud to have led this effort,” said Harlem Chapter President Larry Scott Blackmon. “The Brothers in New York stepped up like never before. Additionally, we are proud to have been joined by our Sorors of Alpha Kappa Alpha Sorority, Incorporated. We all are the talk of the parade.”

The Harlem Alphas are on the move and the parade proves it for all to see.

The chapter continues to throw impactful events for the community, just days ago they held an immigration forum to help immigrants get updates on developments in Washington D.C., understand their individual rights, and provide individual consultations.
