Beta Psi Lambda is awarded a grant for education

 

Alpha Phi Alpha, the world’s oldest intercollegiate fraternity founded by African-American men, announced Dec. 8th, 2015, that it was providing sub-award grants to forty of its seven-hundred chapters (representing twenty-eight geographic regions), as a part of the expansion of its 93-year-old mentoring program, Go-To-High-School, Go-To-College. It comes as no surprise that Beta Psi Lambda Chapter, Los Angeles, Ca., is one of the forty chapters awarded the sub-award grant. Since 1940, Beta Psi Lambda has committed itself to mentoring young boys and men of color in ways that lead to meaningful change in their lives and the communities from which they hail through the implementation of the fraternity’s historic mentoring initiative. The precursor to all of the successful mentoring programs designed specifically with young Black males in mind, Go-To-High-School, Go-To-College has helped countless young people enter the social and economic mainstream.
 
Beta Psi Lambda will apply the grant to its Alpha Esquires Program, a pre-college mentoring program designed to enhance the knowledge, skills, and attitudes towards various aspects of life pertinent to African American males from middle school to high school and beyond. The purpose of the Alpha Esquires Program is to develop the skills to achieve throughout high school, college, and build a foundation to become productive citizens within their community. The Brothers of Alpha Phi Alpha Fraternity, Inc. Beta Psi Lambda Chapter serve as mentors and friends to the group.
 
The Alpha Esquires Program meets two Saturdays a month. To receive additional information, please contact Bro. De Shon Andrews at This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it.
