On Thursday January 29th, Kappa Alpha Psi took over the internet!
In honor of National Mentoring Month, Kappa Alpha Psi’s National Guide Right Committee launched a social media campaign with the hashtag #WHYKAPPASMENTOR which highlighted the importance of mentoring youth.
For the campaign, thousands of brothers posted tweets, Facebook statuses and Instagram posts about the reasons that they mentor, giving testimonies on the importance of being a mentor.
According to the National Guide Right programs official website, this campaign was also used to support President Obama’s My Brother’s Keeper initiative, “by raising awareness around the importance of men of color serving as mentors for young people.”
“In addition, Kappa Alpha Psi will be participating in the White House Initiative on Educational Excellence for African Americans as a special guest to participate in their Virtual Roundtable #AFAMEDCHAT discussion on mentoring,” the official webpage stated.
The #WHYKAPPASMENTOR hashtag has since gone viral bringing in thousands of tweets from even prominent Kappas including Huffington Post Live host, Marc Lamont Hill.Check out some of the other #WHYKAPPASMENTOR posts below:
