Guide Right is a national program conceived in 1922 under the leadership of Kappa Alpha Psi Fraternity, Incorporated. The purposes of the Guide Right Service Programs are to place the training, experience, and friendly interest of successful men, at the disposal of youth needing inspiration and counsel regarding their choice of a life’s career, while the community is made aware of the problems that may be encountered as these young men seek to realize lives of usefulness.
The Fort Lauderdale Alumni Chapter of Kappa Alpha Psi Fraternity Incorporated has implemented its Guide Right Program with Kappa League. It embodies all aspects of the National Program with specific emphasis on leadership development and self-motivation for career achievement.
