MENTORING

Alpha Phi Alpha's "A Voteless People is a Hopeless People" national program was initiated during the 1930s, when many African-Americans were prevented from voting because of poll taxes, threats of reprisal, and lack of education about the voting process. Even now, in the 21st Century, voter education and registration remain a dominant focus of this vital activity. Learn more about the fraternity's efforts to protect and promote voting rights.

first of all, we vote

"If you want a boy to someday BE a man, he needs to SEE a man." That old saying delivers a powerful message that rings true today. Alpha Phi Alpha's participation in mentoring programs -- including Scouting and Big Brothers, Big Sisters -- delivers much-needed guidance and inspiration to our youth. Learn more about Alpha Phi Alpha's initiatives in the area of mentoring.

ALPHA PHI ALPHA college tour

Many students qualified for scholarships or were accepted to colleges during the tour.
